C'est un "bip" de message qui vient d'arriver, je suis comme beaucoup les yeux devant la TV, pour rendre un dernier hommage au King of Pop, et voilà qu'une autre idole de ma jeunesse fait sa présence... Mark qui me redonne ce soir un peu de jeunesse et de vie.
Alors j'espère que pour la prochaine tournée, que Mark jouera quelques notes d'un beat it, j'ai toujours rêvé que Mark et Michael montent ensemble sur une scène, pour leur générosité vis à vis de notre planète, de nos peuples et de notre monde... We are the world !

Dear Mark,
Yes, "dear", because you are part of my life for a long time now...helping me to face all sorts of events, good and sad...I'm 35 and love your music since I was 12.
Happy birthday Mark and I wish you all the best for you and your whole family.
For me, you are such a poet and a composer.
The guitar talks, tells stories though you, and that makes me travel for such a long time!
Thank you so much Mark for everything.
Brothers in arms is still my favourite and its depth touches me so much...
Lots of love and admiration,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARK and see you soon in France, I hope...
Sophie.

At first, I would like to tell you that it would be a great pleasure to invite you in my flat (a small one), in Toulouse, so as to eat a couscous especially made for you, with my own hands ! I swear that my cats will be very quiet ! I know that you really love french wine ...what do you think about a good tunisian meal with french wine ?...Happy birthday MISTER Knopfler...As you always say on stage : "thankkkkkkkk YooooOOu"...for your career...your music, your voice, and your guitar style has been bringing me lots of pleasure and enthusiasm, since I'm a teenager...Thanks to your music and your wonderful lyrics, I decided to learn english...I improved my (poor) english by listening to your music, by reading your poems...thanks to your music I decided to learn guitar!...I met my first love by listening "tunnel of love"...even if I didn't find my love in a tunnel ! (of course, it would have been difficult to kiss my darling in the dark !)...I saw you on stage with dire straits several times, and after dire straits...Lots of my friends had the opportunity to meet you (contrary to me...)..I know that you're a shy guy, and a gentleman...I swear that if you accept to come and eat in my flat, I won't annoy you with dire straits' songs....I won't ask you to play the guitar even if my cats insist ! I've grewn up with your music, and I think that I'll die with your music..I keep fingers crossed to have a drink with you (Pomerol french wine), and to shake your hands...you belong to my world, and I consider you as a member of my family...if you come at home, you'll be in your home ! thank you VERY MUCH for your kindness, and your great heart (your golden heart...).

Dear Mark,

Happy Birthday to you Mark,
You're my Tunnel of Light when things are dark,
My Love over your music is my biggest part,
you're the Sultans, Sultans of my heart.

Thank you with all my heart for the beautiful music you've given us. I owe it to you more than words can describe. I hope I'll "Get Lucky" some day and meet you in person. That would have fulfilled one of my dreams.

Have a wonderful Birthday and many many more to come!

Happy Birthday Mark Knopfler!
Thank you very much for your wonderful music that has accompanied me almost all my life long.
And thank you for always having remained such a charitable person and down to earth.
I love your music because it touches me and it moves me, it motivates me and it very often helps and helped me.
I adore you as a musician and as a human.
I'd like to wish you all the best for the next couple of decades to come, health and luck and love and happiness!
And, as you have pointed it out yourself a couple of years ago when I met you in Munich:
Please do "continue tormenting us with you music until"... as long as you can, please!!!
All the best and many thanks!

What else could I wish you Mark, except than keeping on making us dream for a long long time.

I can't write poems in English, so I'm attaching one written in French that somebody might translate to you. It comes from the deepest corners of my heart!

Mark Knopfler,
Au fond de nos cœurs,
Est comme une fleur,
Nous donnant du bonheur.

Mark et ses arpèges,
C’est un sortilège,
Connaître le solfège,
Inutile, c’est un rêve.

Approche tes yeux,
Plus près de son jeu
Et tu verras ses doigts
Ne jouer que pour toi

Mark, si tu le peux,
N’arrête pas ton jeu
Tes millions d’admirateurs
T’écoutent avec leur cœur.


Marithé ;-)

Happy birthday to you, filled with love and happiness!!!
