To Leonard

Sometimes I can't sleep

Sometimes I'm overwhelmed

Sometimes I feel at peace

behind desperate tears of joy


I get to live in the same world

I can hear your songs

You live not far from here

I'm happy to know you are an old man living a good life

I know those words are not written for me

But you knew that I feel the same

I'm grateful

I don't feel so alone

Even though I will never meet you

I stand

or crawl

In awe

I write

I feel

like you —Anonymous
