3 June 1942 – Queens, New York
My Dearest Sweetheart,
The last three nights we spent together were nothing short of heavenly. You do things to me that have never been done before. Your as sweet and innocent your all a fellow could ask for. When I hold you in my arms the and everything else just disappear and become unknown. I wish deep down in my heart that you will be mine always. Don’t change your mind about me, ever. Please don’t. I also wish that one day we’ll have a little house of our own with things the way you like them and have you all to myself every night when I come home from work. It makes a fellow feel good to know he got something to look forward at the end of a day.
He’s got security in a home and love and tender care of his wife. I only hope that someday this will all be mine.
If you feel only half much toward me as I feel to you then I know you must love me. I love you will all my heart darling and I never want to lose you.
I’m at a loss for words. I really can’t explain my inner emotions. If this letter isn’t as good as you expected it to be please don’t feel bad because I really want you, need you and love above everyone and everything else. Your the only thing that keeps me going. I can’t say much more now. I’m pretty tired. Well goodnight precious.
Love me always — as I love you.
P.S. Your the apple of my eye
Your a bright start in the sky
You’ve a big spot in my heart
And I hope we never part
Because if we do,
Honey (pause) I’ll be very blue
