If I Could Help You

If I Could Help You by Leonard Cohen

If I could help you, buddy, I would
I really would
I’d pray for you
I’d make muscles appear on your back
I’d take you to a bridge
that people think is beautiful
if there were the slightest chance
that you’d like it
I’d get you that motorcycle
Id put your songs on the jukebox
if you were a singer
I’d help you step across
that crack in your life
I’d die for you on the cross again
I would do all these things for you
because I’m the Lord of your life
but you’ve gone so far from me
that I’ve decided to embrace you here
with my most elusive qualities
You always wanted to be brave and true
So breathe deeply now
and begin your great adventure
with crushing solitude
~ from Book of Longing (McLelland and Stewart, 2006)

四棵树

我曾经有两棵树,一棵桑树,另一棵是发财树,去年后来都死了

于是今年,又买了两棵树,都是桑树

进入四月,原本是光杆的桑树也长出很多绿叶,让人欣喜

另外两棵树,虽然已经干枯,也都还没舍得扔,明天给它们拍个照吧
