  • 1. February 25th, 2007
  • 2.
    • From across an ocean, there is little I can do to celebrate this day with you.
  • 3.
    • I can’t bake you a cake.
  • 4.
    • I thought about writing you a poem and I think I still will, but it is not an original idea.
  • 5.
    • I can’t throw a party for you.
  • 6.
    • I can’t take you to the theatre.
  • 7.
    • I can’t smother you with rose petals and heart-shaped confetti.
  • 8.
    • You know me. I certainly can’t be artistic and draw you something - not in any medium, even crayon.
  • 9.
    • I can’t buy you champagne.
  • 10.
    • I can’t take you shopping to choose a birthday gift.
  • 11.
    • I can’t take you to Paris, Prague, or any of the
    • other cities I
    • want to
    • explore
    • with
    • you…
  • 12.
    • … and I can’t go and lounge on a warm beach in some exotic location with you.
  • 13.
    • I can’t even
    • make lists of plans
    • for our still uncharted future.
  • 14.
    • I can’t arrange fireworks,
    • although sparks still fly
    • between us.
  • 15.
    • Life is not a movie. I
    • cannot sit here and
    • direct each day to
    • play out the way that
    • we want it to.
  • 16.
    • I cannot harness the moon and stars and gift-wrap them for you. If I could, I would.
  • 17.
    • Right now, I can’t
    • fly around the
    • world for even
    • a moment
    • with you.
  • 18.
    • But on your birthday (and may it be the happiest ever) I can transcend
    • this sky-filled ocean between us,
    • in one heartbeat of time…
  • 19.
    • … simply, perfectly, with this…
  • 20.
    • I love you.
