Just as I sat down here, I thought to myself, “If I could only write her and tell her how much I love her.”
You know darling, that’s a hard job. It’s funny, I know I love you so much, but I can’t find words that are worthy of describing my feeling toward you.
Of course there’s the usual, “You’re beautiful, sweet, sincere, and very loveable,” but you know all that. I want to tell you something different, but the words aren’t there.
You looked so wonderful today darling, you ought to stay up until six every morning, it’s very becoming.
Today was how I’ll always think of and remember you. As “Little Dottie”—baggy sweater (damn it), skirt, saddle shoes, and bobby socks. Or the way you say “now, be good,” or the way you sound over the telephone when you’ve just gotten out of bed.
Darling I wish I could tell you how much I love you. Just remember: You have all my love, all my life.
Good night sweetheart—
