The letter Gerry wrote to his parents.
Surprise. I know this probably feels a little bit morbid... But I just hate the idea that I'm not gonna be there to see 당신 freak out over turning 30. I mean, it kills me not to be there. Heh-heh. That's funny. Okay. No, it's not. You're gonna be so impressed. I have a plan, baby. Can 당신 believe it? I've written 당신 letters. Letters that will be coming to 당신 all sorts of ways. I waited till your birthday. I figured 당신 weren't stepping out of the house for a while. Letter number one will be arriving tomorrow. Now, 당신 must do what I say, okay? Don't try to figure out how the letters are coming. It's too brilliant and it'll ruin my plan. Just go along with me on this. Because the thing is, I just can't say goodbye yet. So for starters. I want 당신 to get dolled up, and just go out and celebrate tonight. Go out with your girlies. I hereby free 당신 from a party with your family, especially your mom. Oh, man, your mom's there, isn't she? Mm. Shit. Sorry, Patricia. It isn't that I don't 사랑 you, but she needs to get a little crazy. So have a slice of the bloody cake, put on your dress and get out of the apartment. Denise, make a plan. Just leave me with John, okay? And know that wherever I am, I'm missing you. Happy birthday.
I 사랑 you."
Save yourself bruises and buy yourself a bedside lamp. And remember, a disco diva must look her best. Go buy yourself a knock-out outfit. You'll need it for when my 다음 letter comes. And I know 당신 hate your job, but I'll help. Look for a sign. You'll know what to do.
P.S. I 사랑 you.
Go on disco diva! Karaoke this month. Perform and 당신 never know, 당신 might be rewarded...
P.S. I 사랑 you.
My leather 재킷, 자 켓 is for you. I always loved the way that looked on you. But the rest of my stuff, 당신 don't need it. Make some 우주 in that bloody apartment for yourself. Go on. It's time, baby.
P.S. I 사랑 you.
Hey, Big Mama.
Make sure my baby has a good time. Make sure 당신 and John do everything 당신 wanna do, whenever 당신 wanna do it. And make sure my baby does things. I want 당신 to take her fishing. And be sure to give yourself a big, sweaty pony-boy 키스 from me.
Denise, take 호랑 가시 나무, 홀리 to Whelan's, my 가장 좋아하는 pub. There's beautiful 음악 to be heard, beautiful people to be around. And Denise, you're going to heaven for being my baby's friend. I'm making all the arrangements up here for you. Got a few hot men lined up. I hear Ben Franklin's hung like a racehorse.
To my Galway Girl:
You're an 앤젤 for seeing my folks. I told 당신 my mom didn't hate your guts. Well, 당신 know, anymore. 당신 are now standing in my fort, where I did all my big thinking. This is where I stood thinking about 당신 after the very first time we met. 당신 didn't look real to me at first. I never saw so many 색깔 on one girl before... But 당신 looked like 당신 belonged out there, all right. 당신 and all your colors. Do 당신 remember the first thing 당신 ever said to me? ("I'm lost.")
Oh, 당신 didn't look lost, not to me. At first, the no-talking thing didn't last. Before long, I couldn't get 당신 to shut up. But 당신 were so cute, trying to impress me with William Blake and all your grand plans. I had no idea what 당신 were talking about... I didn't have a clue, actually. I loved 당신 right then and there. Life had changed as I knew it. And now it's changed again, love. See, I don't worry about 당신 remembering me... It's that girl on the road 당신 keep forgetting. "My business is to create. It doesn't even matter what 당신 do."
당신 told me that, remember? P.S. So go home. Go find it. Find that thing that makes 당신 like nobody else. I'll help. Look for a sign.
I don't have much time. I don't mean literally, I mean you're out buying ice cream and you'll be 집 soon. But I have a feeling this is the last letter, because there is only one thing left to tell you. It isn't to go down memory lane 또는 make 당신 buy a lamp, 당신 can take care of yourself without any help from me. It's to tell 당신 how much 당신 옮기기 me, how 당신 changed me. 당신 made me a man, 의해 loving me Holly. And for that, I am eternally grateful... Literally. If 당신 can promise me anything, promise me that whenever you're sad, 또는 unsure, 또는 당신 lose complete faith, that you'll try to see yourself through my eyes. Thank 당신 for the honor of being my wife. I'm a man with no regrets. How lucky am I. 당신 made my life, Holly. But I'm just one chapter in yours. There'll be more. I promise. So here it comes, the big one. Don't be afraid to fall in 사랑 again. Watch out for that signal, when life as 당신 know it ends.
P.S. I will always 사랑 you.
당신 said 당신 wanted me to fall in 사랑 again... And maybe one 일 I will, but there are all kinds of 사랑 out there. This is my one and only life... And it's a great and terrible and short and endless thing... And none of us come out of it alive. I don't have a plan except that it's time my mom laughed again. She's never seen the world. She's never seen Ireland, so I'm taking her back to where we started. Maybe now she'll understand. I don't know how 당신 did it, but 당신 brought me back from the dead. I'll write to 당신 again soon.
P.S. Guess what.
