Sample Letter #1
It feels like I have spent my entire life trying to find someone like you. You were my first love, my only true love. You are the one person I've loved more than anyone in the world. There is no reason to fool myself anymore. I loved you from the first moment I laid eyes on you, and I have ever since.
As I look back on our past together, I often wonder how you were ever so patient with me. Until this moment, I have never realized just how lucky I've been to have you in my life. If I had been you, I would have walked away from me a long time ago. Yet your love was so unconditional and pure, like the beautiful person you are. You always accepted me for who I am, willing to sacrifice everything for me. I don't deserve an angel like you.
It brings tears to my eyes to realize how many times I might have lost you, how much I took your love for granted, and how many times I was foolish enough to think that I could fix my life on my own. Please forgive me for all my foolishness.
I have finally opened my eyes and realized that I love you more than words can say. I don't know how many lifetimes it will take to make up for lost time or to repay the kindness and endless love you've shown me, but I want you to know that I am going to try.
All I ask is please be patient and understanding, as these times are difficult and a struggle for both of us. I am torn between survival and my feelings for you. Life throws us many curves. The path may be long and hard but, in the end, the road widens and life changes for the better.
You don't have to say anything or do anything. I just wanted you to know that no matter what happens in this life, you will always be the special love in my heart. It's true. As they say, it is better to have loved and lost, than to never have loved at all. I am happy that I knew true love, for it is from that love I have gained my most cherished memories.
From now to eternity, you'll be in my heart every moment of every day. Thinking of you makes me happy and, for as long as I live, I will never stop dreaming of the reunion of our two hearts.
Thank you for sharing your love and your life with me. Thank you for showing me true love.
