Dear Leonard,
This is a departure from my annual classically hand drawn portrait gift for your birthday but the special nature of this auspicious occasion called for a somewhat different rendering and a light hearted approach. Besides, you put the idea into my head .... Anyhow ..... ;-)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LEONARD!!
I hope the next twenty years and beyond are filled with such life, love and laughter.
In all seriousness, thank you again for all you have done for me over the years and have the very best day for this milestone octogenarian birthday.

Take Care,
Bev

Dear Leonard,
I may not really "know you from the wind", but I feel I have been blessed that you wrote and performed so much more than "the Bible".
You have been a source of great joy and in many times great solace, throughout my life and happily I can continue to experience your words and music in "The Future".

I hope you have a memorable 80th birthday surrounded by family and friends, and that you can feel the love of all your fans around the world.
I wish you a long, healthy and happy life.

Alan

Dear Leonard Cohen,
I wish you.
Finding of lost passwords to crack the code.
Melt the ice in your heart and ignite the flame of love.
Union with the female half of your soul.
Courage to reveal your little secret
New car .
Happy Birthday
