Happy Birthday Leonard

May your day be filled with smiles
May your crazy dreams come true
May you find complete contentment
In everything you do.

May you never lose that longing
May you find a cure for love
May you stay out of the darkness
And never sell that dove.

May you have the strength to dance all night
And find your gypsy wife
Then dance on to the end of love
In your very secret life

May love call your name loudly
As you are passing through
May the future treat you kindly
And may love be there for you.

May true love leave no traces
May none of us be wrong
May you find your land of plenty
And your tower full of song

If you leave a woman waiting
And your fingerprints you lose
And you go home with your hard-on
Always have a good excuse!

May the Johnny Walker wisdom
Be there at closing time
May you find gold on Boogie Street
And diamonds in the mine

May you finally take Manhattan
May democracy come your way
May your heart be filled with memories
That will brighten every day

May this Birthday be a good one
May life never be a chore
May G-d always be with you
As we wish you many more

Happy Birthday Leonard
G-d Bless.

From Harriet S and Redrivershore.

To borrow from the beautiful adaptation by Harriet S and Redrivershore,

" . . .
May your heart be filled with memories
That will brighten every day

May this Birthday be a good one
May life never be a chore
May G-d always be with you
As we wish you many more"

With only simplicity and deep love, Leonard... the years,
the tears, the joy, the learning, and the understanding,
Happy Birthday, Leonard...
a day with beloved family and loved ones

For now and evermore,
My gratitude and love,
Lizzy / Elizabeth

Happy birthday, Leonard!
May you outlive me - even if, bless me, I am only sixteen.
I wish you would come back for another concert in Athens, because you were too early last time (or was I too late?) and for the next two years I waited and waited and you never came. But it's never too late, is it? I am still waiting. :)

Sending you all my love,
be well, be happy. xx

"Oh chosen love, Oh frozen love
Oh tangle of matter and ghost
Oh darling of angels, demons and saints
And the whole broken-hearted host
Gentle this soul..."

Family, friends, happiness all around you,
and sunshine as 'cerise sur le gâteau',
that's what I wish you for this particular day.
And health, of course.
A very happy birthday, Mr Cohen.
and a deeper silence

Hello my friend, sincere good wishes on your 77th Birthday.
Thank you for being alive at the same time as me,
so that I had the privilege to see you in concert many many times.
Thank you for being you, and for what you mean to me.
Have a great year,
Every good wish to you and yours,

"You're song,
a wished-for song.

Go through the ear to the center
where sky is, where wind,
where silent knowing.

Put seeds and cover them.
Blades will sprout
where you do your work." (Rumi)

May we always hear your song!
