For I Fear One Day I Will

Lose You

after Leonard Cohen


There is a man,

so I am told,

a lover of women

and men,

with eyes of brightest sky,

and a voice like the finest wine,

whose touch was once described

like warm candle wax.


And while I stutter

in my words of love,

tighten my grip when we make love,

it is because I hear

that this man

is looking for you.
