I was hanging out with my gran recently, helping her clean out some cupboards and such, when I came across a box of old love letters from my grandpa to her.
These yellowed papers were much-read and deeply loved, and I felt like I was holding a piece of their hearts in my hands. My gran had kept all his love letters for her.
Today, we live in a busy world where we’re dashing from A to B, forgetting that we also share that space with our significant others. When’s the last time you wrote a love letter for your lady?
With a heartfelt love letter, you can share a slice of your heart and soul with the person who gives you reason to live. So grab a pen and paper (or your keyboard) and join me in writing a romantic and sweet love letter for your lady today.
Why Are Love Letters So Important?
Love letters are important as they are a vital part of our communication skills set. When you and your partner have had a quarrel, you can always find a way to communicate with letters if you are too angry to even speak to each other.
But don’t just send letters after or during a conflict; let your romantic partner know how grateful you are to them, share stories about yourself, and tell them how much they make you smile every day.
Using love letters, you can communicate more eloquently with your partner, really expressing your feelings without letting the world distract you from your truth.
You can take your time to find the right words for your lover (but for obvious reasons, don't take forever). With a letter, you can capture the exact words you want to use to express how you truly feel, and your partner can re-read these later.
A heartfelt letter is much better than relying on our memories (which can change over time).
Love letters make beautiful keepsakes to cherish for years to come, no matter what the state of your relationship is.
In fact, a genuine love letter can save your relationship, so don’t let shyness or a lack of literary genius hold you back from penning your feelings for that special woman.
How to Make the Most of Love Letters
Writing a love letter can be a truly scary experience as you may not feel comfortable baring your soul on paper (yet).
However, with a few basic guides, you can write the right love letter for your partner to share how you feel, soothe conflict, earn trust, and reaffirm your love.
Here’s what to do when writing your love letter:
The Evolution of Love Letters
Before we dive into love letters, I wanted to share that when I read my gran’s love letters, I was instantly struck by the power of our words.
In an age where we basically say “I do” with an emoji and divorce with a meme, we’ve often lost the skill and appreciation of a love letter.
Remember, your love letter isn’t supposed to be funny, and you shouldn’t just copy-paste a letter from a blog. Instead, take the time to really think about what you want to say. Your lover will instantly see the effort and appreciate you even more.
A little about the history of love letters:
The art of sending love letters became popular in the beginning of the 14th century during the Renaissance. In the Age of Chivalry, lovers used to send discrete letters with compliments and affections to each other.
But the first love letters were penned a lot earlier. In The Song of Solomon in the Bible, there’s a section where two lovers praise each other. And in the Bhagavata Purana, composed in the 10th century, there is a love letter from princess Rukmini to King Krishna.
There are many examples of famous love letters throughout history, and while you can draw inspiration from those, here are a few more modern ones for your true love.
45 of the Best Love Letters for Her
Love letters can suit any occasion, carry any message, and share how you feel with the person you care most about in this world.
While I want to say that there’s no such thing as a sappy love letter, and you should avoid writing cliché sentences and rather write from the heart.
You may be amazed when your love letter brings tears (of joy) to your lover’s eyes. Be real, be you, and be honest.
Here are the best love letter examples for her:
1. You Are My Best Friend
My dearest (Name),
This morning, as I made you breakfast, I stood watching the steam swirl over your coffee, wondering what I did to be so lucky that I have you in my life. It’s like my memory starts from the day I met you, and everything before that is just a past I no longer recall or need.
You are my best friend and I can’t imagine starting a day without you by my side. Your voice is a constant presence in my memory, and I can’t wait to hear you speak my name when you get home from work or before falling asleep. So, my dearest soul friend, my lover, my partner, I can only hope you feel the same about me as I do you as we have built a friendship for the ages.
Yours in friendship and love – always,
2. You Are My Fortress of Courage
My lover and partner,
Today is a scary day for me as I face a challenge at work, but I know I will stand resolute with you behind me. Even though you can’t physically be there, I feel you near, and I am wrapped in your love and support. You are my fortress of courage, my inspiration, and my reason to keep struggling on (even when I sometimes want to give up).
With you by my side, I feel courageous, brave, and capable. Thank you for believing in me, helping me find the guts to stand tall, and for being the woman I am so proud of. With your love, I can do anything.
3. I Carry You With Me Always
My precious lady,
Even though we have to part for a time, I always carry you with me. There’s no distance that can separate us, and while we both long to be together, I know we stand strong. Distance will make our hearts grow fonder still, and I can’t wait to be back in your arms, wrapping my arms around you at our happy reunion.
The void next to me is temporary, but I can only hope you will return soon and that we can have many years to walk together in a happy union.
I’ll see you soon.
4. Each Day I Love You More
My beautiful (Name),
When we first started dating, I couldn’t believe how much you meant to me, and I couldn’t imagine just how much more you would mean to me as time passed. Each day we are blessed to be together, I fall deeper and deeper in love with you.
The quiet moments during the day are made all the more beautiful and true because you spend them with me. I love you so much, and I can’t wait to hold you in my arms again.
Loving you more daily,
5. Can’t Wait to Say “I Do”
You are a part of my life, woven into my days, and embroidered on my nights. You are my beloved, my partner, and my woman. Since the moment we met, I have longed to walk down the aisle and pronounce to the world that we belong together and to each other.
I can’t wait for our big day, which I wish would hurry up, so we can finally say “I do.” It’s the biggest honor to belong to you.
One step at a time as we run the race.
In loving kindness and joy,
6. Your Happiness Brings the Rainbow
My cherished (Name),
Wishing you a day filled with joy and happiness that brings the rainbow as a blessing on this day. When you smile, heaven shines even brighter, and my heart is filled with light.
Thank you for sharing your light with me, those around you, and the world at large. Surely, heaven is missing an angel, but I can’t stop smiling, because that angel is next to me.
Your love always,
7. Rivers Run Deep Between Us
Hello beautiful (Name),
I know things have been challenging between us lately, but I just wanted to share that I see you, I hear you, and I am here for you. I love you, my beautiful wife/girlfriend and partner for life. No matter how deep the river or how dark the current, we are strongest together.
If you feel like you’re going under, just stretch out your hand – I’ve got you. Remember you’re not alone, and I will always stand here in the flood with you. Whether the water is ankle deep, swirling around my waist, or covering my head, you will never have to face it alone.
Sending you all my love, strength, and peace,
8. Perfection in a Kiss, Love in a Glance
My beautiful (Name),
I decided to write you a note to let you know just how amazing, kind, and beautiful you are. I am always in awe of your grace and warmth, and I still can’t believe you chose to be with me. You’ve made me the luckiest man alive, and I can’t help but crave your touch each day.
In your arms, I have found perfection in your kiss and love in your glance. You make me want to be a better me, so I can be worthy of your love and care. There’s nothing better than wrapping my arms around you and feeling at one.
May you be blessed with kisses and love today.
Warmest loving regards,
9. You Bring Calming Breath to My Dreams
My beloved (Name),
As you breathe in, I feel a cooling breath on my face, neck, and hands. Your very breath sends you to my dreams where we can live passionately and without anything holding us back. I love the sound of your breath and the warmth of your dreams.
May you share the calming presence of who you are today and always. I am in awe of you, and I will always cherish each breath you take. When I dream, I dream of you, and when I am awake, I long to be with you.
10. I Miss You With a Deep Ache Each Day
My dearest (Name),
Each minute we are apart, I am filled with sorrow, but my heart holds its breath hoping you’ll return to my arms soon. The days grow longer without you here, and winter has come to my life. Please return with the warmth of summer, fill my days with joy, and share in our happy laughter once more.
I love you deeply, and I ache for you each day. Know that I count the hours until you are home with me again. No matter the distance or where you are, my love will walk with you always, bringing you back to my side as soon as possible.
Missing you deeply.
Your beloved (Name).
11. You Don’t Mean the World to Me, You Are My World
(Name), queen of my heart,
When other couples tell each other how they mean the world to each other, how they can’t live without their partner, I am always confused. Sure, I don’t want to live without you, and you mean so much to me because you ARE my world.
There’s no sunset or moonshine or dawn or spring or summer without you by my side. Without you here, I spin out of orbit, destroyed by the lack of your gravity holding me close. You are my world, and I spin faithfully around you (the moon to your orbit). So streak across the sky like Haley’s Comet and spin me around once more.
You fill my cosmos and love is our gravity.
12. Want to See Your Smile Always
My brightly smiling (Name),
Oh, the sight of your smile is dawn after a troubled night. When your lips form a bow, I am wrapped up like a present ready to be opened by your love. I can’t help but think that when God (or the Universe) made you, he made a copy of his own smile that he traced on your delicate face.
And when your smile turns on me, I am dazzled by your grace, kindness, and divine countenance. Please smile at me always, bless me with the love you tie into my life, and deliver me from all the pain of solitude when you’re not here. I am waiting: Please smile at me now, and even more, let me know I am the reason for that smile.
13. When Going Long-Distance Hurts
The hours since we’ve parted have been torture, and I can’t believe how far you are from me even now. While I know that there was no way we could avoid the distance, my heart grows tired from sending you all my love. Yet, I send it still.
Going long-distance hurts, but I remain faithfully yours. I can’t wait for your return, to have you in my arms again, and to know you are safely here with me. So, I count the miles, the minutes, and the aches until you walk through the door again.
I love you.
14. Do You Remember?
I know things have been crazy lately, and I wanted to remind you today how amazing we are together. If you ever doubt my love, remember when we first met. Do you still feel those butterflies in your stomach and the way your fingers become as nervous as a kitten playing with string?
I recall each day how I could barely speak because all my mouth wanted to do was dance with yours. So let your lips recall my touch and your fingers remember how we used to twine together as we lay on the sofa on lazy Sunday afternoons.
You are mine, and I am yours.
15. Please Return
My missing mistress,
Your absence in my life has brought me the deepest sorrow. There’s nothing I wouldn’t give to have you on my arm again, to see you bask in the sunlight of our home, and to know you are as close to me as possible.
Our bed is empty now without you here. I starve to lay you on our pillows, wrap a warm blanket around you, and embrace you endlessly. In your arms is where I belong, and I can’t help but ache for you to return. Please don’t leave me in agony any longer – let me see you again.
Waiting for you always.
16. Time Was Stolen From Us
My eternal (Name),
I was wondering how to express just how frustrated I am lately with the time we are apart. While we live in the real world where work, friends, and family take our time in little nibbles that agonized Salvador Dalí, we also need to keep time for us. There is enough time stolen from us each day that we will never recover to waste more on silly arguments, misunderstandings, and conflict.
So I wanted to say in advance that I am sorry for anything I have done that pushed you away or stole more time from us that we could have spent together in happy bliss. You are the best friend, soulmate, lover, and partner I could ever have asked for, and I am blessed a thousand times by having you in my life.
All my love,
17. Without Words
My dearest (Name),
It’s ironic that we can’t really capture the essence of our feelings in words. We try to express just how much we mean to each other, how much we cherish time spent together, and the way we know what we feel without needing to make a sentence of verbs and nouns.
By not relying on words, I have enjoyed really seeing, feeling, and touching our love. We form a sentence together, and when we are out of words, we complete our lines and live in complete peace.
Yours, in every word and deed.
All my love,
18. Longing for Your Touch
My beloved (Name),
Your hand on mine, we walked to the park, and I have never felt more at one with the world. Your touch activated me, showered me with the blessing of a caress, and worshiped my body like a temple. Sure, you are the most divine creation in all that is sacred.
That you would choose me fills me with astonishment, deep gratitude, and utter love. The whisper of your hand on mine still fills me with delight and leaves my fingers a’tingle. I can only ask that you hurry back to me, so my heart can feel at home once more.
Missing you terribly and longing for you every nanosecond,
19. You’re the Salt to My Pepper
My significant other,
In this world, we have to stand together, adding spice to life as we go, and developing flavor, no matter the journey’s bumps. You are the salt to my pepper, the vanilla to my cake, the bacon to my eggs, the butter to my toast, and the coco to my chocolate. We were made to go together, stay forever, and see each other out through the years to come.
My only regret is that we didn’t meet sooner, that we can’t spend more time together, and that we have to share each other with the world. I’d sooner have you in my arms, just you and me, until the end of time, than have eternity alone. You are my fortune, my spice, and my saving grace.
Everything's better with you. And oh-so worth it.
20. The Distance Between Our Hearts Is Zero
Scientists will say that the shortest distance between two places is to connect them and just go through in a straight line. While I know this is how wormholes work, I also know that there’s no better description of love. The distance between our hearts is zero.
We can never be apart or ripped away from each other as we’ve already connected. There’s no distance too big, a galaxy too far, or journey too great for me to love you each day. You are the straight line to my heart, and I am forever falling into your love in happy company.
I love you for infinity,
21. I’ll Love You From Spring to Winter
Dear my beloved,
The seasons pass, each year runs ahead, and life continues from spring to winter. Each day is filled with leaves coloring in the wind and blooms filling the air. From the cooler winter days to humid summer days and the colorful yellow, red, and orange fall to the hopeful and breezy spring, I’ll love you.
While your love will pass through the four seasons with easy and challenging times, we’ll always find our way back together. Because that’s where we belong – with each other. Our love is so worth it. Better to have loved than not at all, right?
22. I Have Found My Soulmate
I never believed that I would find my soulmate. But I did, in you.
When I first saw you, I knew there was something special about you and that you were the one for me. I don’t want to get all cheesy and say you complete me, but I can honestly say that you make me a better man and I always want the best for you. You are my home, and I’ll always try to be worthy of your love.
Our soul connection will always stand the test of time, and I’ll find you in every lifetime – just like I found you in this one.
All my love,
23. Come on Join the Joyride
I only want one partner on the rollercoaster of life – you. I know there will be amazing turns, twists, and arms in the air with loud shouting and joy, but there will also be tumultuous downhills that will scare the heck out of us. Yet, through it all, you are the one I want by my side, wind in our hair, hands firmly clasped together.
My one wish is that I never have to ride the joyride alone and that you’ll always be right next to me. We have our ticket, and it’s for the ride of a lifetime, so hang on tight, baby! Here we go!
Yours in ups and downs, always,
24. I Dream of Love
Who doesn’t dream of finding their true love? My dream manifested and became real when you walked through the door.
I found love in you, but I continue to dream of how our love will evolve as we grow together. May we always hold space for each other in our hearts, appreciate the love we’ve always shared, and dream of the love that is yet to come.
Forever yours in love and light,
25. You Burn Brightly, My Light
My dearest North Star,
I knew that when I met you that you were a star, and the more time we spend together, the more I can see how brightly you burn – especially when my sky looks bleak, black, and gray.
You are the most caring, supportive, loving, and kindest (and best) person I know. And when you enter a room, it’s like the sun rose after months of endless rain. Everything looks new because you make everything better.
Always yours, and I love you so much,
26. A Love Like No Other
My beloved (Name),
I am blessed beyond measure, for I have known a love like no other. In your arms, I have felt complete and at one with the world around you. There is no love that could compare to the joy of being yours, knowing your love and affection, and feeling your tender care.
Yours in love and friendship,
27. Can’t Wait to See You Again
My dearest (Name),
I have been waiting for days now to see your beautiful face as you brighten my doorstep. While I know that you had to go, I pray you will hurry back so I can wrap my arms around you and hold you close again.
The hours drag by like wary soldiers, and my heart is at war with itself, hoping you will return, and fearing you won’t. I know it is foolish, and I trust you completely. But two hearts once joined should not be separated for long.
28. I See You
My sweet and dear (Name),
Today, as I watched you juggling a million tasks, I realized again how blessed I am to have you as my partner, my love. I see you and all the little but valuable ways you make my life better and enrich the lives of those around you.
Oh, how can I ever repay your love, kindness, and compassion other than to say I love you from the very depths of my soul’s well. You are my light, my life, my everything.
29. Mine Soon
Ah, I can’t wait for the hour to arrive, to stand at the front of the church and wait for you to place your hand in mine as my partner, lover, and best friend from this day for as long as we both shall live. Being married to you is the highlight of my life, and I long for the moment to arrive.
I promise you this: I will always love, protect, honor, and cherish you. You are mine (and soon officially), as I am yours.
All my love,
30. Thank You for Our Child
Hey beautiful mamma,
They say that children are the gift of a loving relationship, and now, while we are expecting our first child, I just want to say thank you. On that first day we met, I thought you were the most beautiful woman in the whole world. Now, pregnant, I feel that way even more every single day.
I promise to be by your side every day, to help raise our child in love and in the bounds of our relationship, sharing our values and teaching them our truth. I love you.
31. On Our Anniversary
My soul-friend and lover,
I can’t believe it’s been so many years already that we’ve been together. It feels like only yesterday that I first set eyes on you and knew that we were destined to be together. Your soul spoke to mine, and it was like hearing truth and love for the first time.
Happy anniversary, my love. May we be blessed with many more years together, for I shall love you in this life and the next.
32. My Fun-Tastic Friend
My beloved and amazing friend. Thank you for your presence in my life. I can’t imagine a day without you by my side. No adventure is complete without you to share it with.
You are my fun-tastic friend, my soul support, and my best and dearest companion.
I love you always,
33. My Foundation
My dearest (Name),
This year has had its challenges, and we’ve definitely been thrown about by life. But thanks to you, we stood strong. You are the foundation that anchored me in the storm, the life-vest that kept me from drowning, and the rock I built upon.
Thank you for your courage, love, guidance, and commitment. I treasure you.
34. You’ve Got This
My beautiful partner,
I’m just dropping you a quick note to tell you that you’ve got absolutely nothing to worry about with the interview today. You’ve got this! There’s nothing you can’t do when you’ve set your mind to it.
They’d be crazy not to hire you, and if they don’t, I know without any doubt that there are better things ahead for you.
I believe in you.
35. Mirror, Mirror
My unrivaled love,
Like in a fairy tale, you are unrivaled and perfect in every possible way. The line would say, “mirror, mirror, you are the fairest in the land.” Your reflection is perfection and poetry in motion. I long to see you each day.
All my love,
36. The Book of Love
I read recently that there’s a book about all those who love someone that lies next to heaven’s throne. While we all love someone, my page in the book will have your name written all over it. You are my angel, my light, and my love.
You had better be in heaven, baby, otherwise I won’t go.
Yours faithfully to the end,
37. Goodnight Dear
This letter is the last thing you will see tonight before closing your eyes, so I want to wish you a peaceful night’s sleep. May you softly drift onto the stream of sleep and gently rock on the flow of dreams as you rest after a busy day.
I hope you will dream of me, as I dream of you. And when you wake, may your first thoughts be of me, for I always think of you.
38. You Make Me Smile
When I think of you, see you, and speak to you, I can’t help the smile that wraps around my face. It’s like a roller-coaster that shapes my lips to kiss you. Your presence in my life has brought me such happiness, and I always want to smile at you.
I hope I make you smile too.
39. Heard on the Grapevine
My berry-licious darling,
Your presence is as sweet as grapes on my lips, and your lips are lush strawberries that I can’t help rushing to my mouth. Yet, I couldn’t help but frown when I heard on the grapevine today that you were sad.
Please don’t fret, my beloved. Whatever is making you feel down, I’ll lift you up and pluck all your problems away.
40. Eat, Pray, Love
My dearest (Name),
Oh, the zest for life you’ve brought to me is beyond words. I know no life before you, and I want no life after you. If there is food, let me dine with you.
Should we pray, I pray you will be with me always. And I want you to know that when it comes to love, I will love you until my last breath and until the final beat of my heart.
41. We Stand Together
I hope you know that you’re the other half of the dream team. We’re united, and no matter what life throws our way, we will face it together. I know that with you at my side, we’re capable of achieving anything.
You will never stand alone.
42. When I’m Gone
While I want to promise that I will never leave your side, I know that life takes turns we don’t anticipate. So I want to remind you that when I’m gone, or if I have to leave you for a while, my soul will always be tightly bound to yours.
When I’m gone, I will still hold your hand, no matter the distance between us.
43. A Dark Love
My fallen angel,
Surely, heaven is missing an angel. When we first met, I was convinced that your wings had just fallen off, and I kept looking for a halo underneath my bed each time you stayed over.
You bring the sound of angels to my ears, and I can’t help but worship at your every touch. How could you give up eternity for a mere mortal like me?
So, if you must leave me, let it be to go home to the land of eternal sunshine. But know you leave me in darkness by your absence.
44. My Wealth Lies in You
My precious (Name),
There is no wealth on earth that is as precious as you. Emeralds don’t match, and diamonds can’t compare to the wealth and glory that I find in each hug, kiss, and smile you shower me with.
I am made a billionaire by your presence, touch, and trust. You are the best investment I ever made, and I hope to always add to your brilliance.
I love you.
45. My Drug of Choice
My cherished (Name),
If you were a pill, I would be addicted to the taste of you on my lips. You are my drug of choice, and I am totally enslaved to the way you make me feel when you are near.
Not a moment passes that I don’t want a fix from your nearness. When you’re away, I feel worn out and broken. Yet, a single look from you revives me like nothing on earth can do.
Drunk on your love, high on your touch, and intoxicated by your scent – always.
