I wish I was there on the day you were born so I could thank your mother profusely for bringing you into the world. But I know that time travel is impossible and some stranger going head over heels to thank your mother after giving birth would be weird. So I’ll leave that fantasy behind and jump right into the present. So here we are, many years after the fateful day you came into this world. I don’t know what I did right in my life to make the universe bring such an angel into my life, but I’m definitely going to spend the rest of my life making you as happy as you make me feel. You’re truly the one for me. The one that I’m proud to call the love of my life. Happy birthday! I love you!
How long has it been since the first time we met? It may have been years but to me it felt like a blur. I guess that’s what happens when you’re having so much fun with the love of your life that you completely lose track of time. We went from dumb, hormone-filled teenagers to adults who actually know how to be independent and productive members of society. Imagine that! And as the years go by, as your birthdays go by, you become more and more beautiful in my eyes. We may not be as young as we used to be, but I know we’ve matured and grown together. So happy birthday, to the love of my life, the woman who has been with me through it all.
This is your special day and I want you to enjoy every minute of it. Whatever you need, I’m at your beck and call. If you need a foot rub, a back rub, a buddy to go shopping with, or just someone to drive you around town, I’m your guy. This year, I want to make you feel like the princess you truly are. I want to make you feel like you’re a true goddess who should be worshipped 24/7. Of course, you can push your luck in this day because it’s your birthday. So, babe, I’m telling you now to make the most of it!
Sometimes I imagine what life would have been like if we hadn’t met that fateful day. Would I be the same man I am now? Probably not. I’d probably be a lesser, more miserable version of myself. I’d probably still be wandering the world searching for that missing part of me that only you can fill. I would know deep down that there’s someone out there for me that I hadn’t met. So whenever your birthday comes around, I breathe a silent prayer of thanks to all the forces of the universe that brought you and I together. On the day you were born, our love story began. And here we are now, just at the start of our love story and looking forward to a bright future with more birthdays to come. Happy birthday, gorgeous.
I know it’s your birthday, but why does it feel like I’m getting the best present of all? You are the most wonderful person to ever grace my life, and I’m so thankful that you chose me to spend the rest of your life with. We may not have been together long, but it already feels like we know each other so well that the beat of your heart is in tandem with mine. I want you to know that on this day, many years ago, you were brought into this world so that we can meet. I will always cherish the day you were born because it marks the day when the woman who is so perfect for me in every way has finally arrived.
There are not enough words in any language to describe how incredible you are. I could try to create a poem describing the beauty of your smile and the grace of your movements, but you always leave me at a loss for words. I could try to just sing a melody that would mirror the serenity of your voice, but you always outmatch all the music in the world with just the sound of your laughter. You bring me to a standstill because I could just stare at you for hours and marvel at how a being so perfect could exist in this mortal world. You are an ethereal being that deserves to be worshipped, and yet you choose to be with a simple man like me. I truly am the luckiest man on earth. Happy birthday, my love.
This day is the day when my soul knew form the start that out there somewhere in the world is its other half. This is the day when the birds sing melodies celebrating the birth of a woman so beautiful that if you were born in Greek antiquity, I’m sure one of the jealous goddesses of Olympus would somehow make our story a tragedy. This is the day when the earth smiles because you have arrived. I could wax poetic for hours about how everything on this planet clamored to celebrate your birth. But of course, you wouldn’t believe me and you wouldn’t know because you were too busy being born. So on behalf of this world that loves having you in it, happy birthday!
I know I’m not the type of person who’s good with remembering dates. But I do have a good reason to remember this day. Aside from the fact that I’m sure you’ll have a litany berating my forgetfulness if I don’t remember, I do make the special effort every year to keep your birthday in mind. Why? Because your birthday not only marks the day that you were brought into this world to be with me, but it’s also the day when you mark your journey through life. I appreciate that you are a marvelous individual with your own life, and your birthday signals the years of your maturity. So for this birthday, and the next, and the many birthdays to come in the future, let me wish you a happy birthday!
Hey, babe. I know it’s weird that you’re getting a love letter in my sloppy handwriting. But I was at the bookstore looking through birthday cards, and none of them felt good enough to give to you on this day. So I hope you’re okay with me rambling on as I try to manage to greet you a happy birthday. Babe, you are the love of my life. You are the other half of my soul. You are the fire that keeps me burning, and the warmth that makes me feel safe. You are everything I could ever want in a partner and more. I wouldn’t be half the man I am today if it weren’t for your constant, comforting presence in my life. So on this day, I wish you the happiest birthday.
I don’t know what it is you’re doing right but year after year, you’re looking more and more beautiful. It’s like you add on more years to your age, but you add an ethereal glow each year as well. I swear, it’s like witchcraft! And I’m not just talking about the way you look, you’ve become more and more beautiful within as the years pass too. Because of that, I can’t help but fall deeper in love with you each passing day. I look forward to the day when I completely drown in my love for you, my beautiful queen. Happy birthday.
Make your girlfriend’s birthday extra special by sending her a sweet birthday letter. It’s one of those things that she’s sure to cherish for the rest of her life. And if you happen to find forever in each other, it’s something sweet that your future grandkids can read too!
