Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye

Poem By Leonard Cohen

I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm,
your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm,
yes, many loved before us, I know that we are not new,
in city and in forest they smiled like me and you,
but now it's come to distances and both of us must try,
your eyes are soft with sorrow,
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.

A convincing, genuine song about the end of a love affair. Only one verse though.
'Hey, that's no way to say goodbye' but that's the only way when one is in true love. Meeting and parting both become emotional. Thanks.
Such a lovely write by Leonard Cohen👍👍👍
Leonard Cohen could have sung the grocery list and sound profound, ever so sensual, and beguiling.
Kisses deep and warm! ! Thanks for sharing.
