Johnny Cash Love Letter To Wife June Carter

Just in time for Valentines Day, Johnny Cash might serve as inspiration to you to write that romantic love letter to your significant other. 

According to U.K.'s Daily Mail, the poll was commissioned by British life insurance company Beagle Street. In the Valentine's Day poll, the country music legend Johnny Cash's letter in which he writes to 'the greatest woman I ever met' on his wife June Carter's 65th birthday was regarded as the most moving.

Johnny Cash's 1994 letter from Denmark to his wife is definitely moving.

It reads:

June 23 1994

Odense, Denmark.

Happy Birthday Princess,

We get old and get use to each other. We think alike. We read each others minds. We know what the other wants without asking. Sometimes we irritate each other a little bit. Maybe sometimes take each other for granted.

But once in awhile, like today, I meditate on it and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met. You still fascinate and inspire me. You influence me for the better. You’re the object of my desire, the #1 Earthly reason for my existence. I love you very much.

Happy Birthday Princess.


Now, go write that beautiful letter to your significant other. ;)

The last timeI received a love letter from someone was in grade school. It was so sweet that I had a boyfriend at grade school. But we never kissed... lol
