Leonard Cohen's son has said he wishes he could thank his father "just one last time" in an emotional tribute following the singer-songwriter's death.

The Canadian artist died at home in Los Angeles on November 7. In a Facebook post, Cohen's son Adam said the 82-year-old had been buried in private in Montreal alongside his parents.

He wrote: "There's so much I wish I could thank him for, just one last time.

"I'd thank him for the comfort he always provided, for the wisdom he dispensed, for the marathon conversations, for his dazzling wit and humour."

He said he'd also thank him for "the privilege of being able to make music with him."
