TO LEONARD COHEN WITH WHOM WE SHARED SO MUCH LOVE, by Juan J. Molina
“…death has taken from me, as if struck by lightning…” In this way began the poet his elegy to friend died. This early morning death has taken from us, as if struck by lightning Leonard Cohen with whom we shared so much love. Few times I have felt so much the death of an artist as in this occasion. Sometimes, it is not necessary to know somebody to believe that you actually known him, that he was one more of your friends.
Allelujah! Of having been able to enjoy of your work, take Manhattan first and then Berlin. We dance together to the end of love in your secret live and we whisper things to Suzanne, Marianne and many others… In the Chelsea Hotel, Things that everybody know. And we had the honour to enjoy Alexandra’s evening, and we were brave when the god of love prepared us to her depart and we did not invent excuses or strategies about causes and effects. Even I can imagine you dancing that waltz with your famous blue raincoat.
And your last song, as an accurate epitaph, thine is the glory and our the shame, Hineni, hineni, you want it darker. I am ready, my Lord. Beyond where you want that are, if there is a God, I am sure that he has gone to find you.
