A sad love letter by Vincent Van Gogh

September 7, 1881

Life has become very dear to me, and I am very glad that I love. My life and my love are one. "But you are faced with a 'no, never never'" is your reply. My answer to that is, "Old boy, for the present I look upon that 'no, never never' as a block of ice which I press to my heart to thaw." Vincent Van Gogh, famous French artist to Theo, his brother, describing his passion for his cousin, Kee. She never withdrew from her position of 'no, never never'.
Vincent Van Gogh
Venice October 18, 1503
Eight days have passed since I parted from f.f., and already it is as though I had been eight years away from her, although I can avow that not one hour has passed without her memory which has become such a close companion to my thoughts that now more than ever is it the food and sustenance of my soul; and if it should endure like this a few days more, as seems it must, I truly believe it will in every way have assumed the office of my soul, and I shall then live and thrive on the memory of her as do other men upon their souls, and I shall have no life but in this single thought.

Let the God who so decrees do as he will, so long as in exchange I may have as much a part of her as shall suffice to prove the gospel of our affinity is founded on true prophecy. Often I find myself recalling, and with what ease, certain words spoken to me, some on the balcony with the moon as witness, others at that window I shall always look upon so gladly, with all the many endearing and gracious acts I have seen my gentle lady perform--for all are dancing about my heart with a tenderness so wondrous that they inflame me with a strong desire to beg her to test the quality of my love.

For I shall never rest content until I am certain she knows what she is able to enact in me and how great and strong is the fire that her great worth has kindled in my breast. The flame of true love is a mighty force, and most of all when two equally matched wills in two exalted minds contend to see which loves the most, each striving to give yet more vital proof...

It would be the greatest delight for me to see just two lines in f.f.'s hand, yet I dare not ask so much. May your Ladyship beseech her to perform whatever you feel is best for me. With my heart I kiss your Ladyship's hand, since I cannot with my lips.

Sad Love Letters for Her

How I wish, I could turn back the time and get back to those days I had spent laughing with you, dreaming with you and building our future… Now you’re gone, and I’m miserable. Why did God do this to me? I didn’t do anything but loved you from the bottom of my heart.

I love you so much, more than my life, and do you think I can go through in this life without you? I want to be with you my love…


Dearest (name),
I wake up every morning with the hope to find you by my side, smiling down at me. I still relish the warmth of your hugs. I still wish that I will find protection your embraces. My lips still smile when they remember your touches upon them. My love, have you not realized just how much I miss you?

Darling, beneath the clear blue sky I can only see the love floating and my memories rush back to you whenever I hear a laughter. I so hope that you come back to me. I have always loved you and I will always do. Please come back to me and make my life worthy of living.

Your dearest,

My love (name),
When I was with you I thought that the world belongs to us only. But that you are not with me the earth has stopped spinning. My life has remained on the day when you have left me with a promise never to return. Tell me love, have you not loved me ever?

I still live in the moments when we were together, when you used to look at my eye with all the warmth. Oh! Where did we gone wrong?

Loving you always,

My dear love,

Let me tell you,
When you broke my heart,
Lights faded and life has become dark.
Since then I was wondering
What has gone wrong?
Why you are not mine anymore
When you have been for so long?
I can’t tell you how much I miss,
Your touches and your kiss,
Has everything been long gone?
Have you stopped humming our song?
Please my love, come back to me,
Once more feel my life with love and glee!!

Yours always,

Dearest (name),
Ever since you have left my side there hasn’t been a single moment passed when I have not thought about you. I know you have issues with me and I am apologizing to you for the umpteenth time for what has happened. I have now realized that I can’t think of a life without you. No matter how much I try but I can’t run away from your memories. Just as the earth awaits a rain after a long summer day, I wish for you in my life. My dear, would it be easy for you to forget about all the moments we have shared? Do you not remember our kisses? Please, please, please come back to me and I promise I’ll never make you cry again.

Yours eternally

Sad Love Letters for Him

Without you, time has lost its meaning. I hate to wake up to a reality where you don't exist.

I could never forget the love we had. My memories are the only things that keep me going.

In my loneliness, I dream the same dream of you.

As I gaze into the night sky trying to find which star could be you, liquid diamonds from my eyes kiss the cold ground. I have no idea how to get my angel back.

Yours Truly

My Dearest ___________ (Name of the receipent)

My every waking moment, you entice my thoughts with sweet words and deeds. Hearing your voice brings peaceful comfort and a smile to my face at the mere thought of you. My heart beats for you alone, my darling!

When our eyes locked for the very first time, you rendered me breathless. Now, with the same intense gaze, passionate warmth envelops my heart.

As each moment passes us by, I feel myself drawn more closely to you. The memories we have shared thus far encompass only the beginning as many more will come.

My heart soars blissfully when I am with you. In your absence, I close my eyes and dream of your close embrace, our fingers intertwined and your soft lips pressed against mine.

Sweetheart, everything about you takes my breath away.

Body, Mind, Heart and Soul -
With you I am truly Whole.

I love you.

  Dear (Name of the receipent)

I used to pray for us to be alone, because I envisioned that we'd never run out of things to say. We're both such freaks, such word addicts, so similar yet careening down radically different paths. I used to dream of possiblities floating over our heads, little cartoon-bubble musings matched with cups of coffee.

But on that day, the last day as far as I'm concerned, we sat in a room full of goodbyes and leavings, as filled with last-minute emotion as it could possibly be, and found nothing, nothing on earth, to say.

I remember sitting next to you, so close I thought I could smell your toothpaste, almost touching your knees, and occasionally trying to look into your eyes. That was my way of testing myself to the extreme, because there's nothing like looking someone in the eyes to hold you to the earth. But with you, it was different. Our silence filled me with a warm happiness, like I had swallowed something too hot too fast, and was standing outside, wrapped up and comfortable on a snowy day.

And either way, either way or both ways, we'd still be friends, you in college and me not far behind. You driving and me forever standing, watching you leave, marveling at how close we are yet so unfathomably different.

Yours forever

Dearest (Name of the receipent)

Just as a poet needs inspiration to write a masterpiece

I need you ...

Just as an artist needs a subject for his work of art,

I need you ...

Just as a teacher needs a pupil to mold into greatness,

I need you ...

Just as a composer needs a theme to create a timeless melody,

I need you ...

For without you,(Name of the receipent) , my life would be empty of all inspiration. There will be no work of art for me to gaze at; no person of greatness before me; no timeless melody to listen to. My life will exist in shades of gray instead of vibrant colors, and I will be less than whole.

In the past, the proper words have escaped me, and my innermost feelings have been kept locked away in the depths of my heart. No more - for through this letter, I proclaim to you, (Name of the receipent) my undying love and eternal devotion.

Yours forever,
(name of the sender)
