Dear Leonard,
Since I was 17, for almost 25 years now, you have been my favourite musician and you have been part of my life. Your music is beautiful, meaningful and still surprising me from time to time (even after having listened to it for so many times). I love your voice, it just touches my heart. Thank you so much for your music!
Have a great birthday, I wish you all the best for now and the future.

Take care!

Dear Leonard Cohen,

Back in the early 1970s, there once was a chance to meet you in person, at the Fledermaus in Vienna. But I didn't. I never met you and that was all right because your poetry, your voice−on paper, in recitation, in song−has stayed with me all those many years. I am still listening and would like to thank you and congratulate you as you celebrate your eightieth birthday.

May all the happiness and joy you aspire to and care to accommodate be yours. And may you keep on singing for years to come. Happy Birthday, LC.

You've enriched my life so much with your words and music, Leonard, and I'm so grateful that you're still at it at eighty. Enjoy your entry into octogenarianism and may you feel the joy forever that you bring to all of us!
Love always,
