Geocache Description:


My Dearest,

How are you doing, Catherina? I am sorry for writing to you again. Tonight I drank a crate of beer while watching an old picture of you. Have you forgotten me? I am the man you used to say you loved. You used to sleep in my arms - do you remember? But you never write. You are perhaps mindless of me. I am not of you. I love you. I am like a burnt match without you, fragile and useless. I cannot be thinking that last kiss you gave at the airport. It always brings back memories of that year.

I am still not quite understading why you left me. Was it because Lisa? I always told that she really did not mean anything to me, she was just a workmate. So my love, Catherina, I hope you understand that you can always return. Oh, what I should turn to be to get you back?

This loneliness makes me crazy. I have been sailing through the seas of desperation, diving into abysses of hopelessness. I won in the lottery last week, but that is meaningless. I do not care about money if I do not have you. I could just ram those numbers to the bottom of sea.

If you would come back to me, we could finally do the road trip we used to talk about. I got rid of my old car you hated so much. You most likely love those big american cars... My new car is just a small european family car but there is room for you too and it is red like you always wanted! It is same make and size as my previous one but a newer model.

You probably enjoy living there in the United States. I would like to follow you but I'm not a big city boy and all the buzz in a big state capital would be too much for me.

Hey, my favourite TV-serie is on! You know the easy-going man working for that foundation? It is kinda my only source of delight these days. I am so happy that they made a tv-movie of him, it is coming out soon. He is looking for some lost treasure, how cool is that?

Have you been watching those shuttle launches now that you are there in the States? I'm so excited with these space flights. I've been now following the latest mission intensively. I just wish that I could be a passenger on board with that angle of inclination!

The moment when your plane took off is the worst of my life. Until the last moment I expected the plane to stop on the runway and let you out. But of course it did not, I was like hunting for snipes. Terrible sound of three jet engines roaring to the sky with you went through my body and broke my heart. I really hate that stupid plane.

Please keep in mind that I am waiting for you here, thousands of kilometers away in the Eastern hemisphere. I often go to the airport and watch landing airliners, hoping that a one would bring you back. But they do not. At home I use to see shadows of you in the mirrors and owen doors but they are just delusions. Please at least write to me. Without you I am just a miserable ghost.

Yours always,

Robert


PS. Your son is missing you too. He is growing really fast. He still keeps drawing those funny pictures with numbers. I attached couple of his latest works.
