Good morning, on July 7
Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us –
I can live only wholly with you or not at all.
Yes, I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits –

Yes, unhappily it must be so –
You will be the more contained since you know my fidelity to you. No one else can ever possess my heart – never – never –

Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves.

And yet my life in V[ienna] is now a wretched life –

Your love makes me at once the happiest and the unhappiest of men –

At my age I need a steady, quiet life – can that be so in our connection?

My angel, I have just been told that the mailcoach goes every day – therefore I must close at once so that you may receive the letter at once –

Be calm, only by a calm consideration of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together –

Be calm – love me – today – yesterday – what tearful longings for you – you – you – my life – my all – farewell.

Oh continue to love me – never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.

ever thine

ever mine

ever ours

– For Carrie and Big (Sex and the City), I always knew they would end up together, can’t wait for the sequel ♥
