TITLE: A Love Letter
By Chris Brass



We have been through a lot together and I know that you are filled with doubts about us getting back together. Miscommunication, misunderstandings and mistrust have done more than their fair share of tearing this relationship apart. First thing that I want you to know is that I love you more than you could possibly imagine and the idea of living the rest of my life with you at my side would be just more than a dream come true, it would be answered prayers.

To say 'I love you' has always come easy to me, but to tell you I love you with out the actions to back it up is in my opinion empty hollow words. Flowers, holding you tight and kissing you still does not do justification for the feelings that I have but to say and do those thing while ensuring that you have the freedom to do things that are important to you, taken care of and treated properly is just a small way to show you the love I have. To sit back and watch as family treat you poorly, take advantage of you and prevent you from getting the things you need does not come easily.

You wonder if I find you as attractive as I did the day that we had our intimate ceremony and said 'I do.' The answer is that yes, I still find you as stunning as the first day that I saw you and so much more.

Is it possible if the love that we had for each other can be rekindled, and I can assure you that the love that I have for you has always been there, never left and has even grown.

You wonder if we still have the patience to tolerate each other after all the things that we've endured, but I can tell you that I don't need to dig very deep to find a well filled with it for you.

You worry that we don't enjoy the same things, but to me its the time I spend with you that makes it extra special.

You want more time to think about us, and for you I will make all the time that you need. This relationship is special, has always been special and want you to feel as confident as I do. Because it will take both of us to want it in order for it to be successful.

You're concerned that your changing me into a different person. How I feel about it is that you are changing me into a different person, and it's better than the old one filled with more love, respect, hope, desire, ambition, romance, dedication, charity and growth than I had before. So while you worry about changing me into a different person, I welcome what it is changing me into.

Your Loving Husband.

This is really sweet I could almost imagine my husband reading it to me. You had some sentences that caused me to stumble just a bit. For example:Is it possible if the love that we had for each other can be rekindled, and I can assure you that the love that I have for you has always been there, never left and has even grown.
I think if you have someone read it aloud or if you let it alone for a day or two then read it aloud yourself, if a sentence causes the reader to stumble you may want to reword it some.

Overall, you did a nice job on this romantic piece. I'm sure there are many wives who ache to see that extra love in their spouses' eyes. It was an original and creative take on the topic.

A touching article, it expresses an extra effort to work on a marital relationship.

Good read!
