happy birthday LC

Post by trinigal » Thu Feb 11, 2010 8:31 am

Tribute to LC

For Leonard

Without knowing it
You have been my muse, my lover, my teacher, my friend
From the moment I heard you sing Suzanne...did I say sing?
I knew that you and I would have a love affair
Without words
Without touch
Without song
Without sight
Without ever meeting

Your songs have made my days and my nights
Inspired my poetry, my love,
and my longing for love

They have eroticized my nights
Made me melancholy
Happy yet sad
Left me longing for that ideal love that exists
in your songs
And in your heart

To which

I have been voyeur,
willing and unwilling participant,
Turned on, turned off

But always,

Simply touched.
