Love can be expressed in a myriad of different methods, but the most timeless and most treasured will always remain the classic love letter.
What could be more romantic than receiving a love letter? A good old fashioned, hand-written love letter is still one of the best Valentines around, but don’t just save it for February. A love letter is a powerful expression any day of the year.
You don’t have to be Shakespeare to write the perfect love letter. All you need to know is how you feel. What makes a love letter so romantic is that it is deeply personal. It shows your beloved how well you know them, and that knowledge is the very stuff of love.
Poetry is used often in a love letter. If you find yourself stumped finding just the right words, one or two carefully chosen lines can work really well. If you don’t have a poem in mind, there’s a lot to choose from online. If you want to use something other than the usual classics, I highly recommend “Dance Me to the End of Love” by Leonard Cohen.
Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in…
it continues on and is a very beautiful poem. Just search for lyrics to Dance Me to the End of Love and you will find the entire poem.
Once your letter is complete, read it over carefully and check for errors. This letter will be read over and over. You don’t want a mistake spoiling the mood. If you want to add an extra special touch, seal the envelope with wax.
Last but not least, mail your letter and wait for a reply. Who knows, you may receive a love letter in return.
