something special

There is no other song I love as much as Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah". 

There is something so starkly beautiful about it that makes me shiver. 

In an odd way it instills an increasing hope inside.

My favorite line - "Love is not a victory march, it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah." stunning. 

There are some things in my life that are more painful than I could ever try to explain to someone. But when I look back on them I see that in the end those things will all be brought together into the most beautiful, yes broken...hallelujah...and that will be my love. A shattered glass pieced back together with glimmers between the cracks and chips. The brokenness which tried to steal the beauty, in the end, only adding. 

I love that.

I nodded my head the whole time I read this.

Listened to this song three times today.
