Love letter

Letter 3

Good morning, on July 7

Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us –
I can live only wholly with you or not at all –
Yes, I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits –
Yes, unhappily it must be so –
You will be the more contained since you know my fidelity to you. No one else can ever possess my heart – never – never –
Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves.
And yet my life in V is now a wretched life –
Your love makes me at once the happiest and the unhappiest of men –
At my age I need a steady, quiet life – can that be so in our connection?
My angel, I have just been told that the mailcoach goes every day – therefore I must close at once so that you may receive the letter at once –
Be calm, only by a calm consideration of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together –
Be calm – love me – today – yesterday – what tearful longings for you – you – you – my life – my all – farewell.
Oh continue to love me – never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.
ever thine
ever mine
ever ours

Para quem não conhece, essa é a carta de Ludwig von Beethoven, que foi citada no filme Sex and the City.. linda não é?

Pena que hoje em dia é tão raro recebermos cartas de amor…
