Thank you, Leonard. You gave us all so very much. Your words and music will live forever. I am so very thankful for having seen and heard you perform your songs live. To read your words, hear your songs.

I hope you have found peace now. The love for you is for always.

Going home
Without the sorrow
Going home
Sometime tomorrow
Going home
To where it’s better
Than before

Going home
Without the burden
Going home
Behind the curtain
Going home
Without this costume
That I wore

Yitgadal v'yitkadash sh'mei raba.
B'alma di v'ra chirutei,
v'yamlich malchutei,
b'chayeichon uv'yomeichon
uv'chayei d'chol beit Yisrael,
baagala uviz'man kariv. V'im'ru: Amen.

Y'hei sh'mei raba m'varach
l'alam ul'almei almaya.

Yitbarach v'yishtabach v'yitpaar
v'yitromam v'yitnasei,
v'yit'hadar v'yitaleh v'yit'halal
sh'mei d'kud'sha b'rich hu,
l'eila min kol birchata v'shirata,
tushb'chata v'nechemata,
daamiran b'alma. V'imru: Amen.

Y'hei sh'lama raba min sh'maya,
v'chayim aleinu v'al kol Yisrael.
V'imru: Amen.

Oseh shalom bimromav,
Hu yaaseh shalom aleinu,
v'al kol Yisrael. V'imru: Amen.

My condolences to Leonard's children and family. It is very sad, but Leonard left such a wonderful legacy and will never be forgotten. His songs will live forever. RIP Leonard.

There are no meaningful words.

Leonard Cohen has brought immense joy, comfort and beauty to my life since I discovered his music at age 14.

His work is part of my soul and it always will be.

I will miss him and the songs we would have had. I'm thinking of his family, his fans and all those whose lives he touched.

I will long for the sanity of your words in an insane world.

I hope the preliminaries were not too unpleasant for Leonard. I think all will be ok now. You are Traveling Light. I will be looking for your star in the sky on clear nights.

Deepest condolences to Adam and Lorca and to all of the family. Much loved, he will be sorely missed.

Leonard, thank you for the light, hope and instructional nature of your songs.

Leonard, you are home. Rest in peace, dear sweet man.

Words seem inadequate at such a time: I’m sitting quietly, in tearful emotion, with a mixture of sadness and joy.

Leonard has been such a big part of my adult life and spiritual world... he will continue to be so.

My sincere condolences to his family at this time.

RIP, Leonard.

So sad. He and his songs were always with me for the last 30 years. He will always be in the future too, but now I feel a big emptiness inside. Rest in peace Leonard, we will always listen to you singing from the tower of song. Amen.
