A lot of people search online for romantic love letters to copy. There are many reasons that would justify this – maybe you have a special craft project you are working on, or maybe you are just needing a little inspiration with sample love letters to get you started in writing your very own love letter from the heart.
The best love letters are not copied or written by famous well versed writers – but written from the heart. It does not matter if you are a poet or can barely spell. Just because you are not that great with words, it does not mean that you can’t pour out the true emotions and feelings from your heart.
If you do use a copied love letter, it is probably best to rewrite it using your own words. Never pretend to write a love letter that you did not – if your partner finds out that it was a copied love letter they will probably be pretty sad to find out that you did not think of all those sweet romantic things to say yourself!
Here are some ideas for different love letters you can copy and use to inspire you:
1. Famous Love Letters: There are many famous love letters written hundreds of years ago. Many presidential candidates have written love letters to one another, perhaps the most recent and most endearing being those written by Ronald Reagan to wife Nancy. The book, titled I Love You, Ronnie: The Letters of Ronald Reagan to Nancy Reagan, is full of some of the most simple love letters that at the same time speak volumes.
2. Song Lyrics: There are thousands of love songs out there to draw upon as inspiration. (We’ve got a collection of 500 love songs right here on IMBL!) Like Stevie Ray Vaughn said in the song Letter to My Girlfriend “Wants to be with you, love with you, eat with you, sleep with you, stay with me all of my life” – you don’t have to trip over fancy complicated verbose words to say how you really feel.
3. Poetry: Elizabeth Barrett Browning is probably one of the most famous romantic poets with her poem “How Do I Love Thee?” It’s not too hard to write a love letter and simply write the different ways you love someone. Our list of valentine poems may also give you some added inspiration of things you can write about in your romantic letter.
4. Greeting Cards: I’ve never been a huge fan of greeting cards, simply because it doesn’t seem like they have the same appeal or personalization as a real letter handwritten. However, there can often be some pretty nice sentiments hidden in those too that be used as a great love letter – just need to add in your own words. One card at Hallmark for example (that was personalized) said “Frank, I think I knew I was in love with you when you met me at the airport with a dozen roses. And from that moment on I’ve never stopped loving you since”. So, go ahead and take some time at the greeting card sections in the stores near you and see what kind of gems you can find.
5. Love Letter Generators: This will likely only be silly stuff, but hey you might get some good ideas for a basic template to follow if you need to. One that I tried online similiar to Mad-Libs produced this thoughtful letter: “I love your blue and indigo hair, shining like an aardvark that melts bravery through my heart.” Doesn’t make much sense, but hey, it’s certainly unique. My hubby, who actually has a running joke with me about aardvarks, may find it a sweet sentiment.
