My loving wife

Share

When my wife passed away, I received the most beautiful letter, left for me. Laura was my first love...Unfortunately it was not to be for the long term. I still read this often.

Dear John,

If tomorrow the sun were to rise in the eastern sky, as it always does, but this time to rise without my life within this world, I want you to know how much I love, admire, and respect you.

You're a terrific man, one who through everything going on, has stayed by my side as much as possibly allowed. One who has loved and supported me and given me strength and a shelter for my heart to come home to. A safe haven for my love to grow within. In the short time that I've known you, not a day has gone by that I wasn't already in love with you. At times you have wavered but your heart has always led you back to me. Your patience in this situation has been unbending, beyond what any other man would have been able to handle. This time that we've been forced to stay apart has given me a clear insight to the kind of man you are and I am honored that you have given me your heart, and that you have taken mine with such a gentle kind love.

You've been a wonderful friend to me too. You've stood by me in all this. You've lent me your ear when I've needed to vent. You've given me your advice when I felt lost. You've offered my your unwavering support when I've been scared and you've given me your strength when I didn't think I could take another second in this. But you've also pushed me hard when I've needed it, even when I tried to resist it. When I've been too tired to go on you've been behind me pushing me forward. You've cried with me when I've been hurt and you've cried for me when I've been sick. Only a best friend would do this and you truly are the best friend I have ever had. I look forward to your being my best friend for the rest of my life. I love you so very much.

I admire you for your strength, your kindness, your gentleness and your patience. Not just in this situation, and not just to me but in the way I've heard you speak of others. In the way you are raising the girls in spite of the opposition you face. In the way you take care of others when they are sick or afraid. You have an uncanny ability to exude warmth and love in just a few words. To inspire myself and others to focus better, try harder, strive deeper. To heal, to be strong, to be happy in spite of myself, and to always keep going forward, even when the wall in front of me seems insurmountable. You are my biggest champion and the greatest love I have ever known.

You point out the good things about me when I am feeling at my lowest. When I can't find a reason for anyone to love me, you show me that you do. When I can't find a reason to smile, you make me laugh. And when I look in the mirror and see nothing but a dark ugliness showing in my reflection, you force me to look deeper and make me feel good about myself again. You don't give up on me but more importantly you continually refuse to let me give up on myself. When my days were darkest and death seemed to shadow my every breath you were the only ray of sun shine in my eyes. It was you and your love that kept leading me back from the bowels of Hell that threatened to swallow me. And it was you who kept me from being afraid. When I would fall to my knees in weakness, the knowledge and warmth of your love gave me the strength to stand up again. My biggest fear now is that I will never be fully worthy of your love, but I will forever keep trying to be the person you see me as. And I will for ever and always continue to love you, deeper than the blue skies blanketing our summer days.

You are my heart, my world, my soul, my spirit, my best friend and my every breath. When you got down on your knee and asked me to be your wife, the stars of joy exploded in my eyes, my heart has sang forever more and I never stopped saying yes as tears of unremitting joy course down my face. I am honored now to be your one true love and even more to be your wife.

And I will pass from this world happily smiling into your loving eyes and with a promise to wait for you for forever ... Until it is your time to join me in eternity. I will truly love you for forever.

Love always,

Laura
