Let’s start with one from a famous First Lady
…should I draw you the picture of my heart it would be what I hope you would still love though it contained nothing new. The early possession you obtained there, and the absolute power you have obtained over it, leaves not the smallest space unoccupied.
I look back to the early days of our acquaintance and friendship as to the days of love and innocence, and, with an indescribable pleasure, I have seen near a score of years roll over our heads with an affection heightened and improved by time, nor have the dreary years of absence in the smallest degree effaced from my mind the image of the dear untitled man to whom I gave my heart.
Abigail Adams to John Adams, her husband. He became the second president of the United States. Written December 23, 1782
Love letters to read are often hard to find. The internet selection is very limited.
This one is from another famous persona.
I cannot keep myself from writing any longer to you dearest, although I have not had any answer to either of my two letters. I suppose your mother does not allow you to write to me. Perhaps you have not got either of my letters…I am so dreadfully afraid that perhaps you may think I am forgetting you.
I can assure you dearest Jeannette you have not been out of my thoughts hardly for one minute since I left you Monday. I have written to my father everything, how much I love you how much I long & pray & how much I wld sacrifice if it were necessary to be married to you and to live ever after with you.
I shall [not] get an answer till Monday & whichever way it lies I shall go to Cowes soon after & tell your mother everything. I am afraid she does not like me vy much from what I have heard…I wld do anything she wished if she only wld not oppose us. Dearest if you are as fond of me as I am of you…nothing human cld keep us long apart.
This last week has seemed an eternity to me; Oh, I wld give my soul for another of those days we had together not long ago…Oh if I cld only get one line from you to reassure me, but I dare not ask you to do anything that your mother wld disapprove of or has perhaps forbidden you to do… Sometimes I doubt so I cannot help it whether you really like me as you said at Cowes you did. If you do I cannot fear for the future tho’ difficulties may lie in our way only to be surmounted by patience.
Goodbye dearest Jeannette. My first and only love…Believe me ever to be Yrs devotedly and lovingly,
Randolf S. Churchill
Love letters to read are in short supply and many article directories, like Helium, allow their submission. Why not become a writer and add to the web content while making money?
This one is a classic. Simple and heartfelt.
Out of the depths of my happy heart wells a great tide of love and prayer for this priceless treasure that is confided to my life-long keeping.
You cannot see its intangible waves as they flow towards you, darling, but in these lines you will hear, as it were, the distant beating of the surf.
Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens), American writer, to Olivia Langdon, his future wife.

My Dearest Love,
How are you? I still remember the last meeting that we had. Your compassionate words are still ringing as music to my ears. I am longing for the next golden opportunity to meet you.
The sweet smelling flowers of your love can turn my whole garden flourish with fragrance. Without your love, my green land will become a desert. I firmly believe that your love alone can provide true meaning to my life. The purpose of my life is to simply love you. Your love is of primary importance for me.
I am very confident that you can fulfill all my desires and satiate my wants. I am a nice and soft spoken guy waiting only for you. I can assure you that there will be no quarrel in our life. I am born for you only and am willing to die for your love.
Your pleasing words and company rejuvenates me especially when I exhaust my body and mind. When you are by my side, I get re-energized and re-vitalized even after exhaustion.
I am thankful to you as you are very faithful to me with your good manners. I was ignorant of the values of love before I met you. You are my true preacher of love. I did not know the true meaning of love before coming in contact with you, though I have tried to learn what love is by reading a number of books and watching movies. You have taught me a new meaning to the word ‘love’, which has never been learnt by me before.
Our eyes are best instruments for making love. Merely looking at you and having a glance of your beautiful liquid eyes gives me great pleasure. The love which causes pain also cures my sorrow. Just keep looking at me with love. Your instant, bright, embracing glance gives me supreme delight.
I can destroy and solve my agonizing grief only by drinking the nectar of your love. My ever raising grief can be checked or controlled and can be remedied only by the medicine of your love. Your blissful eyes embrace me with gladness and comfort and endure my sorrow. If I am deserted without your love, no body else other than you can understand my sorrow and cure it.
You are the only pious, deft, faithful, loving and truthful girl in my life. After seeing you I have decided once for all that I am not going to look upon any other girl for love. With deep love, we are made for each other.
With lots of love,
