Example Letter #1
I sit here, lost in the memory of you. What is today? I don't know. What is it I'm supposed to be doing now? I can't remember. It couldn't have been very important. Thoughts of last night still fill my mind and heart. Nothing else seems worth my time and effort. Where am I? Well, not here in this confined space, not really. I'm still lost in everything I felt when we were together. That was when you and I became "us" and I could no longer tell where you left off and I began. I love you, Lisa, and my love is lasting and true. I'm not sure when it began but I know it will never end. Surely, life can offer no higher fulfillment than what we experienced last night.
There can be no other woman in my life now but you. I've been involved in other relationships in the past, but they certainly can't compare to what I have found with you or to what I'm feeling now. Perhaps the others were just "dry runs," practice for the real thing, for a reality that I couldn't even imagine until I had experienced it for myself. Last night, I couldn't help but surrender to the feelings that had captured my soul and yet promised me freedom and joy. Today, the words of an old John Denver song come to mind, and it is only now that I understand what the "sweet surrender" he sang about really means.
You must know I can't stand being away from you much longer. I hope you feel the same way. Lisa, tell me when can I see you again!
I love you.
Example Letter #2
I hope you know how much our relationship has come to mean to me. Getting to know you over these last few months has changed my life. I'm happier than I have ever been, and I owe that joy to you. Before I met you, there was an emptiness in my heart that at times seemed to consume me, that threatened to break me--but now my life is full of meaning and purpose. I can see my future more clearly now--you are the light in the dark that guides my steps to where I want to be. When the entire world was once overcast by subtle shades of gray, when I seemed caught in a perpetual winter, you brought vibrant color to my life, and in my heart I felt the renewal, the warmth and sunlight of spring again.
I adore your kind smile and your gentle eyes. You have so much good in you--you treat me so well. I love your quiet strength, and your desire to do right. You have such a love for others, and your example makes me want to be the best that I can be. You can always make me laugh, even when I don't always want to. When I look into your eyes--those gorgeous azure eyes--I see a reflection of my own soul. And in your arms, I know there is no place on earth that I would rather be.
In quiet moments, I wonder what I ever did to be blessed to have you in my life. You remind me of what is truly important in this life, and I'll always be grateful to Fate for bringing us together. I can't remember what my life was about before you became a part of it. You're always on my mind--in my thoughts, and in my dreams.
I love you so much and I hope you know that I will always be here for you. I am yours now and forever, body and soul. Like the ebb and flow of the ocean waves, my love for you goes on forever and forever; like the great redwoods that reach toward the sky, my love for you grows and grows--higher, stronger, deeper. I can't imagine my life without you anymore. I've never loved anyone as I have loved you--I know now I never will. You're everything to me.
Example Letter #3
Is the world still spinning? Since last night when you and I ceased to be individuals but became "us," I have felt that I was residing on a world where time did not exist. Is it night or day? I don't know anymore. I no longer need food; sleep is impossible. I have no interest in world events or market prices. All that matters is you. If the sun rises, it rises because of you. If the moon courses across the sky and bathes the world in yellow light, it does so because you exist.
Is this the love they write about in romance novels? What else could it be? What else could compare to this feeling? Surely life would have no meaning for me without you. And other girls? A vague memory. They were only schoolboy romances, puppy love, meaningless flirtations. I can honestly say that nothing I thought I felt could ever compare with the profound love I feel for you now. I am finally alive! What does the poet say?
There were bells on the hills
But I never heard them ringing.
No, I never heard them at all,
Till there was you.
I must see you again. This afternoon is not soon enough. Tonight is too late. Now I know there could be no other woman in my life but you. Please tell me when I can see you.
I love you.
Example Letter #4
You have been constantly on my mind since our last date. I'm more convinced than ever of my feelings for you. I love you, Jane. I only want you in my life, and no longer want to see anyone else.
I've never felt like I do now. I can't compare the depth of my emotions to anything I've ever experienced before. I feel like I'm finally breathing fresh air!
I can't wait to see you again! The weekend seems so far away!
Example Letter #5
I don't know how I made it home last night. Did I drive, walk, fly? I hazily recall walking through my front door and collapsing on my bed. Then I spent many sweet and sleepless hours vividly thinking of you--each detail of your face, your voice, your touch.
You swept me off my feet (literally!) and my heart has never beaten so fast. I cannot find the words to describe my feelings. How can I express the ways you're changing my life? Simply saying, "I love you" seems so inadequate. My affection is so much greater than those three little words. Forgive me for not being more eloquent; just try to sense in those deceptively simple words the profound depth of feeling within me. I love you, Jane. I cannot say it any better.
No one in my life compares with you. No one ever could. I don't need to search further; there is no one else I'd rather spend my life with. All my past relationships pale in comparison to my life with you in vivid, vibrant colors. This morning, I heard Nat King Cole on the radio singing, "The Very Thought of You." He was singing just what I want to say to you.
The mere idea of you, the longing here for you...
You'll never know how slow the moments go till I'm near to you...
When can I see you again? I want to do something special for you. Name the day, and I'll plan a night for us both to remember.
Example Letter #6
Like the song says, last night was "Just Like Heaven." I'm sitting here at work, thinking of you, and I can't even find the words that will express the way I'm feeling. I can tell you this, though--after last night, I am 100% positive that I'm in love with you.
I love everything about you... I love your blue eyes, your thick hair, and your smile. I love the sound of your laugh and of your voice, and the warmth of your body when you hold me. I love the smell of your cologne and the taste of your lips. I love how, when you touch me, tingles race up and down my spine. You arouse all of my senses.
I don't want to be with anyone else; I only want to be with you. I've never felt this way about anyone before. I feel like I'm floating, like my heart is skipping, like my mouth will never stop smiling. I love talking to you; I feel like I could tell you anything. I love the way that you respect my opinions, even when they differ from your own. I love the way that I feel special whenever you're around. It feels like there's no one else in the room. I love how you look into my eyes and I feel like I can see into the depths of your soul.
I love the man that you are, and I cannot wait to see you again.
