Entry for WYL Contest: Letter to Noah

Hope you have checked out our Write Your Love Contest. If not, do so now. Here is the entry from Sweta Lal.

The letter is addressed to Noah, the protagonist of the Novel “The Notebook”.

The Letter

Dearest Noah,

I can tell you the silliest of things and still not feel stupid at the end of the day.
You make me feel special and loved every second.
I am just so happy and blessed to have an angel like you.

The reason it hurts so much to say “Goodbye” is that our souls are connected.

I say this because you cannot see we have already made our commitment to each other forever.

I ask you, “Who are you”

You are not the one I know

Thy identity is more than what you let me see

We are there for each other forever and that is an unconscious promise we have made. When I can reach out to you beyond the natural and see things, which you want me to, it goes beyond the laws of nature. You can take me to all the places you want me to. When we are beyond it, there is nothing, which can make our souls below that.

That is not you and me its “US”.

Finding a perfect mate like you had never been so easy and that makes it all the more unbelievable…

I had come through so many words as hollow as the sea shells; with the sea shore nearby washing away all my dreams before you came in my life.

Never had I imagined that I would say this one day to someone.
It had to be someone as special as you to make my promises to;

Words will fade away, thoughts forgotten.

Our bodies will perish, promises abandoned,
the only survivor through the days to come will be Our Soul…

So this very moment as I Vow…
Let no Words, no Promises… no Feelings distract me…

“Let the Spirit of our Friendship cherish the moments of eternity”

Forever yours Sweta…

End of the Letter

About the Novel

“The Notebook is a 1996 American romantic novel by American novelist Nicholas Sparks. The novel was later adapted into a popular romance film by the same name in 2004. However, the movie and the book have very different endings.

The Notebook was inspired by the story of the grandparents of Sparks’ wife, who had been married over sixty years when Sparks met them. Sparks marveled at how much the couple cared for each other, and wrote his novel as an attempt to describe such a love.

How did you like Sweta’s expression of love for Noah? 🙂

      Very beautifully written. It is true that when you like and understand a second person and also liked and understood by that person starts the beginning of a relationship that is beautifully described as friendship.Very well expressed Shweta.

    The letter shows a deep bonding between two human beings. Bond of love, care and trust. The trust that is unexpressed and still so strongly evident. I liked this letter from the core of my heart. It has touched me. The words amazingly create lively moments in front of eyes.

    The best thing that can happen to anyone is to find a soulmate. Someone with whom you can share your entire life unabridged,never having to bother about being righteous all the time…someone who would know you with all your goods and bads and still love you and allow you to love him back as completely…

    Its a delight to read this letter coz it makes me know that you have found such a soulmate.
    Wonderful feelings…Beautifully expressed…Heartfelt.

      I am glad you liked the letter so much…

    Sweta -you have used such nice words to describe the love felt , experienced.You have put it so well that you can be yourself, the ordinary yourself and still feel extraordinary ! I love reading all your work and this one is my current favorite.

    Thank you, this is beautifully done 🙂 There is nothing more pure and lasting than soul love. I believe that it is the “friendship” of the souls that brings the lasting bond of two souls through all eternity, and I have often wondered it these two souls will re-unite throughout many life times together!! What a blessing when we are given such a gift! Mine is near……I can feel him!!
