Dear Leonard,

I wish you a Very Happy Birthday. Your songs/poems will always be kept alive. ( Your loving fans will see to that.)
Thank you for making me smile every time I listen to them.

Sincerely
Marie

Happy Birthday Mr. Cohen!

If you experience even a fraction of the joy you have brought into the lives of my husband and myself with your words and music, you will be more than fulfilled. Wishing you love, peace, health and happiness on your birthday and always. May you always be surrounded by the people who love and by those who love you.

Warmest regards,
Mary & George

Dear Mr. Cohen,

I'm so grateful for having got to know your poetry and your songs. I never saw you alive but have watched your interviews on YouTube and found many comforting
and graceful ideas in them. I have also your Books of Mercy and Longing and your album Various Positions and the cassette "I'm your man". I have loved you for decades. As you said in one of your interviews "the heart is always opening and closing, it's always softening and hardening" . That's the way I've been loving you and your songs and still am.

Now you're turning 76. I remember you with warmth and a sort of bittersweet longing and wish you all the best for years to come.

God bless you dear Mr. Cohen.

Yours Sincerely

Raija

Dear Leonard,

There is a Latin proverb which goes something like, "The happier the time, the more quickly it passes." And so it seems......

I wish you every happiness on your 76th birthday, and thank you for the joy you've brought to so many people over the years.

Love and best wishes,
Joy x

Dear Leonard,

My Happy Virgo Birthday to You

will be to celebrate it on my radio program, the "Tower of Song," complete with your music.
I still have and cherish the card you so graciously sent from LA in 1993 for my September 22nd birthday.
