Poetry Break

I PRAY FOR COURAGE
Leonard Cohen

I pray for courage
Now I’m old
To greet the sickness
And the cold

I pray for courage
In the night
To bear the burden
Make it light

I pray for courage
In the time
When suffering comes and
Starts to climb

I pray for courage
At the end
To see death coming
As a friend

from The Flame (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2018)
