I did my best to make him smile
it wasn't much; he loved my try

when amused, which is so rare
his blaze of laughter fills the air

like music from a joyous buddha
all I can say is hallelujah

This poem was inspired by Leonard Cohen's song of the same title. Listen to one of my favorite versions by Athens Creek.
