To My Best Friend And Lover,
Jack, I thought about my love for you today, like I do every day. But why don’t I ever tell you how much I love you? You and I are a team, and we’ve been through so much together all of these years as husband and wife. Perhaps I take it for granted that you already know how I feel. But that truly isn’t enough, is it? We all need to hear those words – so I’m putting pen to paper to remind you of how deep my love is for you by writing a love letter.
We are so connected, Jack. I can tell in an instant if you are frightened, happy, disappointed or sad. It takes a deep love to share such a connection. I am grateful for your willingness to always share and express your feelings with me, like life partners need to do, rather than keeping it inside. Rain or shine, I will always be at your side – I hope you know that. Thank you for feeling safe to be yourself with me.
I am also grateful for the wonderful friend I have in you. You know just the right time to offer your reassuring arms, wipe a tear, give me space or gently rub my back as I drift off to sleep. I don’t know how you do it, but you just know what I need and give it willingly. Thank you for having such a warm, caring heart.
I also recognize that our children have been so blessed to have a wonderful father like you. No matter if you are feeling stress or are exhausted after work, you give 100% of yourself to our children, and they will grow up to be beautiful people just like you, because you set the best example of what a father should be. Thank you for being such a terrific father.
That I still feel butterflies when I see the sparkle in your eye, hear your contagious laugh fill a room, smell your cologne on the pillow after you’ve left the bed makes me feel like the luckiest woman on earth. We may be getting older, but our love feels like it gets renewed energy each day we are together. Thank you for being my lover.
Jack, you show me respect each day, sometimes when I don’t even deserve it. You always thank me for every little thing I do for you. You equally share the burdens of life with me, you include me and respect my thoughts and viewpoints on any obstacle or decision we make. Thank you for respecting me and loving me so much.
There is no place I’d rather be than in your arms each night. There is no other man I could ever want in this world except you. You are a precious gift to me and without you in my life, my world would have been complete darkness. I love you, my sweetheart, now and for eternity.
