Leonard Cohen says the raw heart beat against the world…

“I lost my way, I forgot to call on your name.
The raw heart beat against the world, and the tears were for my lost victory.
But you are here.
You have always been here.
The world is all forgetting, and the heart is a rage of directions, but your name unifies the heart, and the world is lifted into its place
Blessed is the one who waits in the traveller’s heart for his turning.

– Leonard Cohen, Poem 50, Book of Mercy
