Dear Leonard Cohen
You were my one true master. As an artist and a writer, you were my example. If I can, one day, reach even a fragment of the grace that flows through your songs, I will have done enough.
I owe you a debt of gratitude for the gifts your songs have given me over the years and so to repay you in kind, I wrote you a song.
I think you would liked it but I never dared to send it you when you were still with us.
It’s called You Never Left, perhaps you would have appreciated the theme, it’s one you loved to use too; mortality and the journey of the spirit seeking Grace.
It is my song to you L.Cohen, thank you.
