For better or for worse, birthdays are a reminder of getting older and as time passes by everyone is inevitably getting closer to the day they die. So while it sounds pretty bleak it fits that it's coming from Arthur cause last time we saw him like that it was after his death and he was urging Sheldon to appreciate the people in his life. It's a lovely callback to that. I agree. The first time I heard the line I thought Arthur was reminding him that earthly lifetime is limited. Also the words 'be with this woman' sounded as though there was a lot of emotion behind them. On repeat viewings it's sunk in with me that he also tells Sheldon he can see the movie any time he wants to, in contrast to the time available to be with Amy. That implies to me that Sheldon has less time to spend with Amy, which doesn't make a lot of sense. I don't quite get the juxtaposition.
