This letter is voted the greatest love letter of all time. Written by Johnny Cash, to his wife June in 1994 on her 65th birthday
Happy Birthday Princess,
We got old and got used 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.
