If the Sun would Lose its Light




Impression. Sunrise, Claude Monet 1872

A friend of mine from Argentina, and a great fan of Leonard Cohen,  has pointed out to me that the title of this poem is the same as one of the lines of the Cohen poem of  2016 entitled “If I didn’t have your love”. 

If the sun would lose its light


If the day would lose its night


if the sea would lose its salt


If the forests would lose their trees?



If there was nothing left


but rising waters


diminishing dunes


and flowers made of stone?  



If we had met earlier


We would not have this debt


to the unknown, the unpracticed,


the fearful and the scared.



If we had never kissed


I would have never known


what I could have missed


If we had never loved.
