Dear Leonard,

I hope that you have a Wonderful Birthday and make some lovely memories!
You have made so many unforgettable memories for so many of us!

I saw you,again, in London's O2 Arena, last Sunday night, 15th September.
From my very good seat, on the right side of the stage, I spotted two empty seats, at the end of the Front Row!
I moved to the inner one during the interval and then ran to just off centre stage where I stood in awe for your last several songs!
Each time I have seen you I have got that bit closer but I never dreamed that I would get that close to you! I have thought of little else since!
I just can't wait to see you again,Leonard! So, even though you 'know where the hook is', please don't hang up those gloves for a long, long time!

Happy Birthday and all the best from Budapest!

Dear Leonard...

I am adding on an additional 'little song' for you not sure if it works.
for your Birthday...

Well it was not 'working' for me so I got the help of my niece rosienoon who finally has sent
it through successfully...! much much later pm/am!! See below at Page 11....

It is a song from County Clare...(as in The Cliffs of Moher etc.) where I was born..
called My Lovely Rose of Clare...! I dedicated a couple of lines to you for your
Birthday....Dear Leonard....wanted to thank you & send you Wishes in Song...!
(but I am not a singer...however...it is a humble effort...!

All Good Things...xxJosie Cyberspace :lol:

Dear Leonard, I hope you had the Birthday you'd wished - relaxing or exciting or... and a chain of 365 incomparably happy days to follow.
Thank you for all the precious moments you gave to me with words, music and meeting lovely people; may they return a million for one to you!

Waiting for the miracle,

Happy Birthday, dear Leonard. Happy Birthday to you!

My life is ever so much richer because of you and your songs. The three concerts I attended in the past 5 years were awe-inspiring. Stay well. Long may you live!

I've got a little secret
If you promise not to tell
In 20 years from now
you will be 99
(and still alive and kicking)

Happy Birthday dear Leonard Cohen!

Me too, I would like to say to you what I heard you saying us last October at your concert in Lisboa: "I cannot forget to tell you: You are beautiful!"

Muitos parabéns querido Leonard Cohen!

For you, winning her was easy but darkness was the price.
For the rest of us the result was unforgettable art.

Happy Birthday, Leonard.

One year ago I was counting down for Verona Concert...today I'm celebrating two anniversaries, with a vivid memory of that Concert and great expectations on Leonard's masterpieces still to come. Mind your promise Leonard, keep on going forever!!!
