Dear Leonard,

For your birthday
I wish you peace
I wish you love
I wish you joy
And all other things you might need
Like good health
And what everybody knows you have
Like golden voice
Like a birthmark on your skin
I wish you for your birthday.

From small Aars, Denmark
Happy Birthday
Tillykke med fodselsdagen!
With Love

Happy, happy Birthday wishes tomorrow. We are so fortunate you were born in our lifetime -- I love you and thank you for all you have given us. Your concert April 2009 in Victoria BC -- I'll never forget your generosity as you delivered those beloved icons to us again, from whispers to anthems, one by one. Please take care of you, Leonard.

All the best to the great poet from Serbia.

Dear Leonard,

Just a little note to wish you happy birthday and to let you know what a wonderful weekend that I had! Ha! and you thought this note was about you!

This past Friday I produced a tribute concert in your honour in Edmonton, Alberta, for our 8th annual Leonard Cohen Night. Our performing guests were truly excellent; interpreting your words and music in their own style. But our most charming guest was your son, Adam. What a pleasure it was for me and the artists to work with him - he was the consummate coach - providing advice and assistance where possible. You would have been proud to watch him at work and at play!

I hope this note finds you well (under some unappetizing circumstances) and that you too have had a wonderful weekend. Happy birthday to you!

More birthday wishes from Australia.

I am sitting here at work listening to Live In London and thinking about Lens health.

May he have many more birthdays.

Dearest Leonard,

On your 75th birthday, I wish you unexpected beauty, moments of surprise, joy in being awake and in inspiring so very much love. Thank you for succor, sanctuary, and rigorous challenge. May you (and all sentient beings) know peace today.

Happy Birthday, Dearest Leonard

How many others have around 20,000 guests at their 75th birthday party? So many others of us will be with you in that room in spirit, you must know that and I hope you feel it too. Have a wonderful, wonderful evening in Barcelona, I just know they will raise the roof when you come on stage.

My hope is that this coming year will be your happiest ever dear Leonard, with peace and love all around you. You have given us all so much. Words fail me, as they did when I met you the morning after the London RAH concert outside your hotel. Again I say 'be happy', I can think of no greater wish for you.

XXXX (a thousand kisses deep)
...he shows you where to look amid the garbage and the flowers
