I'M Your Man

Poem By Leonard Cohen

If you want a lover
I'll do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
I'll wear a mask for you
If you want a partner
Take my hand
Or if you want to strike me down in anger
Here I stand
I'm your man

If you want a partner Take my hand Or if you want to strike me down in anger Here I stand I'm your man. interesting poetic expression of love and... tony
An all rounder kind on man, determined to win love.
A true man to a life partner and lover should be ready to absorb the anger hurled at him from his beloved, as love is what binds them.
An honest declaration of love! Enjoyed!
Although I have not been able to digest Cohen as musician (songwriter yes) , I will NEVER question his ability as a first class poet. His use of language is powerful and singular is flow and form. He should have been awarded a Nobel. Great choice for modern poem of the day, a Canadian and artistic treasure.
