Love Letters. 100 words to tell you that I love you

  • Author:
  • Updated date:


I don't need one hundred words to tell you that I love you, but I need more than the three words it really takes. As whole as 'I love you' sounds, it just doesn't say enough. It doesn't say how I hunger for you, how I breath through you, how I smell what you smell, how I see the world through your eyes, how I hurt when you hurt, how I laugh with your smile, how my heart is shaped around yours. I need you to hear all this when I tell you that I love you.





I love you has changed its brilliance over time, has transformed itself from a flash of blinding light to a radiant sun to a sustained and unstoppable glow that never expires, a timeless ray that guides me through any night, any uncharted territory, any quest.

I love you is my lighthouse, I can't get lost while I love you like I do. Your light shines into me and I radiate your essence to find myself, see myself, understand myself through your eyes.

The brightness of loving you fills my soul, lights me up from the inside out.




I'm really sorry, babes, I don't know what I was thinking. Actually, I'm sure I wasn't thinking.

That bullshit about love meaning never having to say I'm sorry.... whoever came up with it didn't have the first clue about love. Love makes it unthinkable not to apologize if I'm the cause of your pain. I wish I never hurt you, but that's also bullshit because as much as I love you I'm imperfect, humanly so. How can I ever be sorry to have to tell you I'm sorry? How can love mean never to apologize when I hurt you?



At first I was afraid I was petrified, Kept thinkin' I could never live without you by my side... Remember that song? It takes a left turn while my life with you takes a right. After all these years, I feel I wouldn't survive without you. Maybe I could carry on, but I don't even want to consider the possibility. You've got the key to my heart and I can't think of ever changing that lock. If you threw away the key, I would survive, but it would take all the strength I have not to fall apart.

Cheers Deborah, I hope he appreciates the beauty of simplicity :)

Deborah Demander from First Wyoming, then THE WORLD on January 22, 2017:

These are beautiful in their depth and simplicity. I tend to be too wordy. I think I will follow your example for a love letter to my husband.

Thanks for the post. Unfortunately I can´t be together with the woman I love, cause I live in Germany and she lives in Canada. But I know we will be together in future and marry and have children. Michelle, I will love you forever. You are the woman of my dreams. I can´t be without You anymore!

Elena. (author) from Madrid on November 03, 2011:

Hi Claudia, thanks for the kind words, I don't think you should love the letters more than your boyfriend, though :-)

ClaudiaAshleyBrown♥... on November 03, 2011:

Yours letters are amazing! I think I love them more than my boyfriend! Your a brilliant writer, just reading these makes me emotional!

Elena. (author) from Madrid on March 21, 2011:

You came to the right place then, ezeoma :-)

ezeoma sunday on March 21, 2011:

i just need some love words

Elena. (author) from Madrid on October 06, 2009:

With a name like yours, Faith, I'd expect you'd "believe" in love :-) But I'm not sure what you mean by "here". In this earth? In the web?

Faith on October 06, 2009:

I am not sure there is something like love..

can any body get that here?

Elena. (author) from Madrid on September 19, 2009:

Thank you, k@ri! :)

Kari Poulsen from Ohio on September 19, 2009:

These are so capture the true essence of love. :D

Elena. (author) from Madrid on September 19, 2009:

Elena is pleased by Janetta's comment. And Elena likes it when Janetta AHEMs. Now, some letters aren't meant to be mailed, but read out loud to one's lover's ears :-*

Janetta on September 18, 2009:

Janetta wishes Elena would just mail her the darn things instead of writing a hub LOL I do love your letters E. For a AHEM non writer, you do have a way with words :)

Elena. (author) from Madrid on June 10, 2009:

Cheer up, ashley, life's ahead of you and there are more boyfriends to be had, you'll see! :-)

Thank you, jess. Sorry to hear about your break up, but glad that you still have hope to find love. I also went through a nasty breakup but see here, I found love again, so good luck to you on that!

jess on April 11, 2009:

Elena. (author) from Madrid on March 19, 2009:

Thank you, Amanda -- love is indeed a very powerful emotion :-)

Amanda Severn from UK on February 03, 2009:

Elena, your letters are beautiful and touching. These are powerful emotions being expressed here.

Elena. (author) from Madrid on February 03, 2009:

She was, and THAT truly made me swoon :-*

Christoph Reilly from St. Louis on February 03, 2009:

Now that my little joke has run it's course, I wanted to come back and tell you that your letters are truly beautiful. Anyone would be blown away to receive such poetry. I'm sure she was!

Elena. (author) from Madrid on February 03, 2009:

I doubted you'd ever notice me, Christoph, the fact that you 'got' my letters has me swooning! I shall need the salts now!

Christoph Reilly from St. Louis on February 02, 2009:

Gosh, Elena.  I have strong feelings for you, too!

Elena. (author) from Madrid on January 31, 2009:

Thanks, Anthony! For me feeling humble comes from having this love in my life :-)

ajbarnett from Costa Blanca, Spain on January 31, 2009:

Nice words, Elena. Stuff straight from the heart. If I was on the other end of them I'd feel mighty humble.


Elena. (author) from Madrid on January 26, 2009:

Hi Cris -- Glad I could inspire you BACK! :-)  I'm still dreamy touchy feely with all those wonderful kisses!

On poetry, I think this is the closest I can get to creating a poem, in English at any rate!

Cris A from Manila, Philippines on January 26, 2009:

How I wish somebody would send me letters (okay, email is also good!) like these here! Like what they have said, the ones who got here before me (LOL), this hub is very inspiring. The narrative as poem as narrative is very creative - and clever. Thanks for the inspiration :D

Elena. (author) from Madrid on January 26, 2009:

Wow, that's a major compliment, Chrissy! I'm grateful to you for having delivered it with such grace and generosity! Very happy that it inspired you! :-)

Chrissy Says... from Wenatchee, WA on January 26, 2009:

By far my favorite thing I've read in a long time...I couldn't put my finger on exactly what moved me, but I LOVE the purely poetic nature and how it meshed so well with your "no BS" way of speaking. I'm rather inspired...Thanks! :-)

Elena. (author) from Madrid on January 24, 2009:

Thanks, chillingbreeze, I'm glad you think so, and I appreciate your comment!

chillingbreeze from India on January 24, 2009:

Simply B'ful :). Just to go beyond that "I love you", sometimes we tend to think, imagine, and write truly amazing to our partners. Yours ones are great..


Elena. (author) from Madrid on January 24, 2009:

Thank you, Benjimester, I appreciate your comment! That line is so true, too :)

Benji Mester from San Diego, California on January 24, 2009:

Thanks for the poems! I really liked the line "I love you has changed its brilliance over time"

Elena. (author) from Madrid on January 06, 2009:

Shesh!! Mighty good point! Laugh!

LondonGirl from London on January 06, 2009:

At least you aren't Katherine / Katharine / Catherine / Kathryn (-:

Elena. (author) from Madrid on January 06, 2009:

No prob with the name, there, LG! I don't know what it is with this name of mine, the other day I also got called something else in a reply to a comment –seriously, maybe I need a radical name makeover! Laugh!

LondonGirl from London on January 06, 2009:

Glad to hear she did!

Sorry I wrote your name wrongly - one of my sisters is called Eleanor, and it stuck in my head while I was typing.

Elena. (author) from Madrid on January 06, 2009:

Thanks LondonGirl! I know SHE did! :-)

LondonGirl from London on January 05, 2009:

Eleanor, that's wonderful. Hope he appreciated it!
