Best Love Letters
- Napoleon to Joséphine
Ever since I left you, I have been sad. I am only happy when by your side. Ceaselessly I recall your kisses, your tears, your enchanting jealousy; and the charms of the incomparable Joséphine keep constantly alight a bright and burning flame in my heart and senses. When, free from every worry, from all business, shall I spend all my moments by your side, to have nothing to do but to love you, and to prove it to you? I shall send your horse, but I am hoping that you will soon be able to rejoin me. I thought I loved you some days ago; but, since I saw you, I feel that I love you even a thousand times more. Ever since I have known you, I worship you more every day; which proves who false is the maxim of La Bruyère that “Love comes all at once.” Everything in nature has a regular course, and different degrees of growth.
- Frida Kahlo to Diego Rivera
Nothing compares to your hands, nothing like the green-gold of your eyes. My body is filled with you for days and days. You are the mirror of the night. The violent flash of lightning. The dampness of the earth. The hollow of your armpits is my shelter. My fingers touch your blood. All my joy is to feel life spring from your flower-fountain that mine keeps to fill all the paths of my nerves which are yours.
- Georgia O’Keeffe to Alfred Stieglitz
Dearest — my body is simply crazy with wanting you — If you don’t come tomorrow — I don’t see how I can wait for you — I wonder if your body wants mine the way mine wants yours — the kisses — the hotness — the wetness — all melting together — the being held so tight that it hurts — the strangle and the struggle.
- Beethoven to his “Immortal Beloved”
Even in bed my ideas yearn towards you, my Immortal Beloved, here and there joyfully, then again sadly, awaiting from Fate, whether it will listen to us. I can only live, either altogether with you or not at all. Yes, I have determined to wander about for so long far away, until I can fly into your arms and call myself quite at home with you, can send my soul enveloped by yours into the realm of spirits — yes, I regret, it must be. You will get over it all the more as you know my faithfulness to you; never another one can own my heart, never — never! O God, why must one go away from what one loves so, and yet my life in W. as it is now is a miserable life. Your love made me the happiest and unhappiest at the same time. At my actual age I should need some continuity, sameness of life — can that exist under our circumstances? Angel, I just hear that the post goes out every day — and must close therefore, so that you get the L. at once. Be calm — love me — today — yesterday.
What longing in tears for you — You — my Life — my All — farewell. Oh, go on loving me — never doubt the faithfullest heart
Of your beloved
- George H. W. Bush to Barbara Bush
This should be a very easy letter to write—words should come easily and in short it should be simple for me to tell you how desperately happy I was to open the paper and see the announcement of our engagement, but somehow I can’t possibly say all in a letter I should like to. I love you, precious, with all my heart and to know that you love me means my life. How often I have thought about the immeasurable joy that will be ours some day. How lucky our children will be to have a mother like you…
- Ronald Reagan to Nancy Reagan
I know tradition has it that on this morning I place Happy Anniversary cards on your breakfast tray. But things are somewhat mixed up. I substituted a gift & delivered it a few weeks ago.
Still this is the day, the day that marks 31 years of such happiness as comes to few men. I told you once that it was like an adolescent’s dream of what marriage should be like. That hasn’t changed.
You know I love the ranch but these last two days made it plain I only love it when you are there. Come to think of it that’s true of every place & every time. When you aren’t there I’m no place, just lost in time & space.
I more than love you, I’m not whole without you. You are life itself to me. When you are gone I’m waiting for you to return so I can start living again.
Happy Anniversary & thank you for 31 wonderful years.
I love you
Your Grateful Husband
- Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn
But if you please to do the office of a true loyal mistress and friend, and to give up yourself body and heart to me, who will be, and have been, your most loyal servant, (if your rigour does not forbid me) I promise you that not only the name shall be given you, but also that I will take you for my only mistress, casting off all others besides you out of my thoughts and affections, and serve you only,” he wrote. “I beseech you to give an entire answer to this my rude letter, that I may know on what and how far I may depend. And if it does not please you to answer me in writing, appoint some place where I may have it by word of mouth, and I will go thither with all my heart. No more, for fear of tiring you.
- Vita Sackville-West to Virginia Woolf
I am reduced to a thing that wants Virginia,” she wrote. “I composed a beautiful letter to you in the sleepless nightmare hours of the night, and it has all gone: I just miss you, in a quite simple desperate human way. You, with all your undumb letters, would never write so elementary a phrase as that; perhaps you wouldn’t even feel it. And yet I believe you’ll be sensible of a little gap. But you’d clothe it in so exquisite a phrase that it should lose a little of its reality. Whereas with me it is quite stark: I miss you even more than I could have believed; and I was prepared to miss you a good deal. So this letter is really just a squeal of pain. It is incredible how essential to me you have become. I suppose you are accustomed to people saying these things. Damn you, spoilt creature; I shan’t make you love me any more by giving myself away like this — But oh my dear, I can’t be clever and stand-offish with you: I love you too much for that. Too truly. You have no idea how stand-offish I can be with people I don’t love. I have brought it to a fine art. But you have broken down my defenses. And I don’t really resent it.
Greatest Love Letters
- Abigail Adams to John Adams
My Dearest Friend,
…should I draw you the picture of my heart it would be what I hope you would still love though it contained nothing new. The early possession you obtained there, and the absolute power you have obtained over it, leaves not the smallest space unoccupied.
I look back to the early days of our acquaintance and friendship as to the days of love and innocence, and, with an indescribable pleasure, I have seen near a score of years roll over our heads with an affection heightened and improved by time, nor have the dreary years of absence in the smallest degree effaced from my mind the image of the dear untitled man to whom I gave my heart.
- Prince Albert to Queen Victoria
Dearest deeply loved Victoria, I need not tell you that since we left, all my thoughts have been with you at Windsor, and that your image fills my whole soul. Even in my dreams I never imagined that I should find so much love on earth. How that moment shines for me still when I was close to you, with your hand in mine. Those days flew by so quickly, but our separation will fly equally so. Ernest [my brother] wishes me to say a thousand nice things to you. With promises of unchanging love and devotion, Your ever true Albert.
- Mark Twain to Olivia Langdon
Out of the depths of my happy heart wells a great tide of love and prayer for this priceless treasure that is confined to my life-long keeping.
You cannot see its intangible waves as they flow towards you, darling, but in these lines you will hear, as it were, the distant beating of the surf.
- Zelda Sayre to F. Scott Fitzgerald
I look down the tracks and see you coming—and out of every haze & mist your darling rumpled trousers are hurrying to me—Without you, dearest dearest I couldn’t see or hear or feel or think—or live—I love you so and I’m never in all our lives going to let us be apart another night. It’s like begging for mercy of a storm or killing Beauty or growing old, without you. I want to kiss you so—and in the back where your dear hair starts and your chest—I love you—and I can’t tell you how much—To think that I’ll die without your knowing—Goofo, you’ve got to try [to] feel how much I do—how inanimate I am when you’re gone—I can’t even hate these damnable people—Nobody’s got a right to live but us—and they’re dirtying up our world and I can’t hate them because I want you so—Come Quick—Come Quick to me—Lover, Lover, Darling—Your Wife
- Richard Nixon to Pat Nixon
…And when the wind blows and the rains fall and the sun shines through the clouds (as it is now) he still resolves, as he did then, that nothing so fine ever happened to him or anyone else as falling in love with Thee—my dearest heart.
- Orson Welles to Rita Hayworth
Dearest Angel Girl:
…I suppose most of us are lonely in this big world, but we must fall tremendously in love to find it out. The cure is the discovery of our need for company — I mean company in the very special sense we’ve come to understand since we happened to each other — you and I. The pleasures of human experience are emptied away without that companionship — now that I’ve known it; without it joy is just an unendurable as sorrow. You are my life — my very life. Never imagine your hope approximates what you are to me. Beautiful, precious little baby — hurry up the sun! — make the days shorter till we meet. I love you, that’s all there is to it.
- Marilyn Monroe to Joe DiMaggio
I don’t know how to tell you just how much I miss you. I love you till my heart could burst. All I love, all I want, all I need is you—forever. I want to be just where you are and be just what you want me to be. I know it’s lousy of me to be so late so often, and I promise to try a million times harder, I promise. Love, Marilyn
- Johnny Cash to June Carter Cash
Happy Birthday Princess, We get old and get used to each other. We think alike. We read each others minds. We know what the other wants without asking. Sometimes we irritate each other a little bit. Maybe sometimes take each other for granted. But once in awhile, like today, I meditate on it and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met. You still fascinate and inspire me. You influence me for the better. You’re the object of my desire, the #1 Earthly reason for my existence. I love you very much. Happy Birthday Princess. John
Sweet Love Letters
My tenderness, my happiness, what words can I write for you? How strange that although my life’s work is moving a pen over paper, I don’t know how to tell you how I love, how I desire you. Such agitation — and such divine peace: melting clouds immersed in sunshine — mounds of happiness. And I am floating with you, in you, aflame and melting — and a whole life with you is like the movement of clouds, their airy, quiet falls, their lightness and smoothness, and the heavenly variety of outline and tint — my inexplicable love. I cannot express these cirrus-cumulus sensations. Letters to Vera by Vladimir Nabokov
I hope you never doubt my love and intentions for you. As the stars light up the night sky, so does your love for me light up my world. Regardless of the time and day, you will always have my unwavering love and loyalty. I love loving you, and nothing can change that. I believe in you, and I believe in us. So, never, ever lose hope because we have a beautiful future ahead.
You are only one in my mind and in my heart. Do you know the effect you have on me? Even in times of stress, I find myself calmer than usual. I always seem to find the lighter side in things and situations. This is so unlike me, the pessimist I used to be. You are the only angel in my heart of heaven.
I’ve longed to write to you in a while, letting you know how I feel inside. You gave me everything to make my life glow, and I can’t thank you enough for being the sweetest thing in the world.
How can I describe my feelings for you in this short letter? This space won’t be enough to contain everything I feel about you. You keep showing me that in every age and any place, true love exists, and I’m so happy to have found you when I did.
Having you in my world has brought me more satisfaction than anything can bring, including money. I can’t thank you enough for touching me deeply with the things you do for me. You are the best thing that came my way, and I feel alive each time I get to see your lovely face again. Have a beautiful day, baby.
I am writing to you, hoping to show you a glimpse of my mind and the priceless worth I have placed on you. You are everything I ever dreamed of and the only one who dared to love me, despite my shortcomings. You are my all in all, the sun of my universe, and the freshness to the air I breathe. Years ago, I had no one to write to in such great depth. But when the wave of love hit me, every pain and hurt of the past got washed away. Sweetheart, I desire to be the one who sets your heart on fire all the days of your life. It is only through this that I will be able to give you everything you deserve because you are a precious and irreplaceable soul. I love you.
The day I met you for the first time is still fresh in my memories. That day changed my life because you walked into my life, and everything turned so beautiful. Since then, I have become a happy man surrounded by positivity and love that you have showered me with. I wish that you always stay close to me and keep making me feel lucky every day.
Heart Touching Love Letters
I love you since the moment you came into my life. I look forward get a glimpse of yours every day. You have touched me deeply like on one else. The feelings are so very difficult to express. Today I have gathered the courage to put forth my love before you. I just wanted you to know how I feel about you.
I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant. You alone have brought me to Bath. For you alone, I think and plan. Have you not seen this? Can you fail to have understood my wishes? I had not waited even these ten days, could I have read your feelings, as I think you must have penetrated mine. I can hardly write. I am every instant hearing something which overpowers me. You sink your voice, but I can distinguish the tones of that voice when they would be lost on others. Too good, too excellent creature! You do us justice, indeed. You do believe that there is true attachment and constancy among men. Believe it to be most fervent, most undeviating, in. Jane Austen
My heart beat and soul mate, your love and care have given me the strength and courage to come this far. You have always been with me during the hard times, giving so much support, courage, love, and advice, and I’m proud to say that I am the person I am today because of you by my side. I know that saying I love you couldn’t express exactly how I feel about you, and our relationship. With all sincerity of heart and purpose, I want you to know that I am always thinking about how nice and loving you have been to me. Sincerely, it wouldn’t have been this easy without you, and I will always love you beyond human imagination, until the end of time.
It’s another occasion of love but I’m glad to tell you that my love for you isn’t in seasons, I love you both in and out of season. I love you each and every day and the thought of you is the reason behind my smile. You’re one person in my life who understands all of my feelings and the intents behind my actions. On this day, I want to express my love in action to you and tell you how devoted I am to loving you!
I found everything I was looking for when I found you. You compliment me just as much as you complete me. I am blessed to have you by my side. All my worries seem to vanish into thin air when you are beside me. I long for your presence. I get anxious to see you when you are not around. The more I spend time with you, the more I fall in love with you.
Our love is something that is truly special and there is no other love like ours in the world. I feel as if I have won the lottery with you, someone who is so special and magical, who makes my life and my world a thousand times better just by being there. When I look at you, I know that I have truly hit the jackpot. All you have to do in order to warm my heart is to be the loving, caring person that you are. Together, we can do so much and help each other realize our dreams because we truly have a love that is special.
Cute Love Letters
My love has made me selfish. I cannot exist without you – I am forgetful of every thing but seeing you again – my Life seems to stop there – I see no further. You have absorb’d me…I would be martyr’d for my Religion – Love is my religion – I could die for that – I could die for you… John Keats to Fanny Brawne
There is nothing more beautiful in the world than the love that we share darling. For never have to people come together in such perfect harmony. We complete each other, in ways that we never even thought were possible. We met at a time when self-doubt plagued us both and probably in that hour of need we bonded. That bond grew stronger over time and I know now that we were meant to be all along. The fact that I have you in my life, to love and to hold makes me feel alive and you my dear make me feel blessed to have you.
Let me start by saying that I thank God every night since I found you. I’ve never been so certain of anything in my life like I am of us. You have totally changed my outlook in life and I thank you for that. I never thought that someone could love me like you do, but guess what? I love you that much too. You make my life complete. I love you so much. Today I promise you that I would do anything in my power to make you a great person, outstanding lover, and supportive partner.
I am thankful to you; you made my life such a wonderful place. I love myself, because I am in your space. Darling, I want you to know that you are my life’s most beautiful feeling. And, I would like to make you remember something, that I am yours. I love you and will always do.
Falling in love with you has been the best thing for me in this life. I still wonder how such a beautiful, loving, and caring girl can love someone like me. I think I have just been lucky. I promise to always be there for you, to keep you happy and smiling.
Beautiful Love Letters
Darling – I love these velvet nights. I’ve never been able to decide … whether I love you most in the eternal classic half-lights where it blends with day or in the full religious fan-fare of mid-night or perhaps in the lux of noon. Anyway, I love you most and you ’phoned me just because you phoned me tonight – I walked on those telephone wires for two hours after holding your love like a parasol to balance me. Zelda Fitzgerald to F Scott Fitzgerald
If only I were a clever woman, I could describe to you my gorgeous bird, how you unite in yourself the beauties of form, plumage, and song! I would tell you that you are the greatest marvel of all ages, and I should only be speaking the simple truth…You are not only the solar spectrum with the seven luminous colors, but the sun himself, that illumines, warms, and revivifies! This is what you are, and I am the lowly woman that adores you. Juliette Drouet to Victor Hugo
I wanted to write you a love letter. I know it’s a little silly but I thought I’d try anyway. It’s just that I feel so much when I’m with you that I try to put it in words, so that you know how I feel about you.
I can’t see you right now but I can picture how you are. I see your hair and the way it falls on your shoulders, the way you smile and how you look right before you laugh. I want to be next to you right now. I don’t want you to hold anything back.
My dearest love, I wanted to tell you how much I simply adore you. I worship the ground that you walk on. I cherish every breath that you take. I pine for you when we’re apart. I have never felt this way about a man before. I love your smile, your cute butt, your outrageous laugh, your constant positivity. When you walk into a room it simply lights up and I’m so lucky to be on your arm when we go anywhere. All the greatest love songs ever made could never put into words my feelings for you. The only way love can last a lifetime is if it’s unconditional. The truth is this: love is not determined by the one being loved but rather by the one choosing to love. And I choose to love you every single day of my life.
Emotional Love Letters
…I know I sound bitter, but my darling, I don’t want to be. I’m honestly happy with my new life and my new friends. I feel I can breathe now. Most of all, I have you to live for. Realistically, there had to be a choice — you or them. How could it be both? I’ve never had a moment’s doubt. I love you. I believe in you completely. You are my dearest one, my reason for life. From Atonement by Ian McEwan
…But oh my dear, I can’t be clever and stand-offish with you: I love you too much for that. Too truly. You have no idea how stand-offish I can be with people I don’t love. I have brought it to a fine art. But you have broken down my defenses. And I don’t really resent it. Vita Sackville-West to Virginia Woolf
Knowing you are with me makes my life a dream come true. Remembering our first kiss is remembering since when my heart beats for you. When we first held hands, our souls became one. Seeing you is feeling everything is fine. My love, I share all my feelings with you.
I am so completely in love with you. I wake up and sleep every day with your thoughts in my heart. Every day seems like a blessing and full of fun since I have met you. I feel so lucky and honored to be in love with you with all my heart. I love and cherish you more than I did yesterday but not more than I will tomorrow. I can’t explain the way you make me feel when I hear your voice or see your face, but I adore it. Loving you is the best thing that has ever happen to me. I never regret the day I met you, you mean everything to me. Best Friend, my love for you knows no bound. Thinking of your love strengthens my heart. I am proud of everything you do because you are the most fantastic person I have ever had contact with. My lifetime desire is to be with you forever and always.
My home is your heart and I want to reside there forever. I lay my heart in the palm of your hand. I want to belong to you forever. You complete me and you make me whole. Among the list of reasons why I love you, the first on the list is the fact that you are you. I love everything about you and there is nothing I want to change. I love all your flaws and imperfections. I may not get to tell you this every day but I want you to always have it in your heart and in your mind that I love you so much.
You will be my best friend forever. I love you so much, babe. I couldn’t live without you. I need you around me 24/7. I love waking up beside you and seeing your face smiling at me. I love watching you sleep peacefully after making love to me. I love hearing you snore. I love laughing with you and talking to you. I love spending hours doing nothing but listening to music with you. I love going shopping with you. I love cooking dinner for you. I love taking walks with you. I will love you always.
