Here’s the latest love letter submitted by a reader who has allowed me to share it with you all today. I hope you can take inspiration from these beautiful words.
I have started a new calendar. No, it is not the calendar containing 365 days. My calendar marks the time until your return. I cherish each cross I use to mark another day gone. This cross is bringing me a day closer to seeing you again.
It would be very difficult for me to say that I am not missing you. Ok, the truth is that I miss you like crazy. Love can be painful but the agony comes with the sweetness and the hope that time will pass quickly. So quickly that I will be soon waiting for your arrival at the airport.
I miss you, my love. I miss your touch, I miss your smile, I miss the silly, little things we do. It is difficult to eat dinner alone, not having you sitting at the other side of the table, telling me what happened during your day. The bed is too large for one person. You know what? I sleep in your T-shirt… It makes me feel closer to you and it still holds your scent. This is the only way for me to go to bed.
I hope that you are doing well and I hope that you are happy with your job. How is it? Do you have to work a lot? Do you get some time to relax and enjoy a day off? What is it like there? Please, dear, let me know. Your letters will help me get a better picture of the place you are living in now. What does your apartment look like, what do you have for breakfast? Do you have friends among your coworkers? Do you feel happy with the things you are doing.
They say that life goes on and I should try to enjoy myself. I go to work, I see my friends. The days are busy, which makes it easier for me to stop thinking, to stop counting the hours. The nights are more difficult but I know that you are doing the right thing. Please do not get me wrong, baby, I support you 100 percent. This said, I do miss you like crazy!
I imagine your return. This is the picture I see in my mind each night before going to bed. What is it that I see? Your arms! Their strength and their warmth. I know that you will instantly drop the suitcases you are carrying when you see me. You will hold me in your arms and lift me off the ground. I will once again feel like a child – loved and protected.
Baby, please take care of yourself. Although we will be away from each other for a long time, keep in mind that you are always on my mind. I will be with you, no matter when and no matter where. So will my love. Think of it when you feel lonely or sad. I love you and the distance will never change it.
I am waiting impatiently for your letter. Let me know what is going on in your life. My love, I miss you and I cannot wait for you to come home. Sending you all my love and kisses.
Yours truly and forever,
