I'M Your Man

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. 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.
Hearty expression of a dedicated heart. Wonderful. X
Where are the rest of the lyrics to this wonderful song by Leonard Cohen? II feel that t's important to present the song as a whole in order to gain an understanding of the overall meaning of the poem. I think the great man would be most displeased to see one of his notable songs cut down in this way....surely food for thought? !
Or if you want to strike me down in anger Here I stand I'm your man....lovely verse

I am ready to wear whatever form you want me to, To say 'I love you' need no high-fangled words, nor so much poetic air,
A brief poem which covers all bases, from the hand of the well-known, talented, and now departed Leonard Cohen. Thanks for sharing this as POD.

Another fine song, which has six or seven more verses though.
Beautiful poem written in persuasive expressions with artistic brilliance. An awesome creation.
Piece of great elegance.
This song knocks me down every time I hear him sing it- -his voice is such wicked velvet
