The content of the letter:
For the Victorious Father
June 1, 1586
You always said, “Honey, let us live together until our hair does not grey and we do not die on the same day.” How could you leave without me? Who do I and our little boy should listen to, how should we live? How could you leave before me?
How can you bring me your heart, how can I give you my heart? Whenever you stayed up with me, you said, “Honey, do other people love and appreciate each other as we do? Are they like us? “How could you leave it all and go away without me?
I just cannot live without you. Take me to you. My feelings make I cannot forget about you and my sadness has no boundaries. What to do with my heart, how to live with the child without you?
Please take a look at this letter, please reply in my dreams. Because I want to hear what you’re saying in my dreams, this is why I write this letter and leave it here. Read and answer.
A child is growing inside of me, who will be called the father? Can anyone understand how do I feel? There is no tragedy like this one in the open air.
You’re just in a different place now and not in such deep sadness as I am. There is no limit, and the end of my sorrows. Look, come to me in dreams. Show yourself and tell me what to do. There is no end to what I want to say, but I will stop here. “
Love is timeless. Love from centuries ago is the same as that which we share today. It’s amazing and invaluable power.
