A deep happiness

A deep happiness
     has seized me
My Christian friends say
that I have received
     the Holy Spirit
It is only the truth of solitude
It is only the torn anemone
fastened to the rock
     its root exposed
to the off-shore wind
O friend of my scribbled life
your heart is like mine —
your loneliness
     will bring you home

— Leonard Cohen
