My Dearest Vanessa,
Since we’ve been separated again I have felt an emptiness that can only be explained by being apart from the woman I love so dearly. As a result, I have spent the last couple of weeks frequently thinking back to the first time I saw you. Above all else it was your smile that drew me to you and I knew at that moment that I wanted to be with you. To this day there is nothing that brings me greater happiness than to see you smile at me, whether it is for something silly that I said or because it just so happens to be one of those moments when our souls seem to connect and we are simply happy to be together. I am forever sorry that we have to be apart, but I know that the time will go quickly and we will soon be together. Then we will be able to sit on the porch and watch the sun set, or work side by side in the garden. But more than anything, I ache for the time when I can hold you in my arms, kiss you softly, and whisper in you ear that I will never leave you again.
