Romeo and Juliet were two star-crossed lovers from Shakespeare’s famous play of the same name. Their love was forbidden by their families, but they still found ways to communicate with each other.
In this day and age, we have a variety of ways to communicate with our loved ones, no matter where they are in the world. Romeo and Juliet could have used email, text messages, or social media to stay in touch with each other. Here are some examples of modern love letters from Romeo and Juliet:
“My dearest Romeo,
I can’t stop thinking about you! I miss you so much and can’t wait to see you again. I feel so lucky that I get to be your girlfriend. I love you from the bottom of my heart.
You are the light in my life. I love you more than anything and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you. I feel so lucky to be able to call you mine.
All my love,
With thoughts of you still in my mind, I hurried home to finish off what I never had the opportunity to say to you in the form of a letter while your beautiful face is still very clear in my mind. Romeo, I know you, and how you respond. So I’m aware that your first instinct will be to pretend these last few days never happened. You’ll want to shred and trash this letter as a means of avoiding the situation. But please do not ignore this communication on my behalf . For my sake. Seriously, from the beginning , true things
These past few days I have spent with you has been the happiest of my life. Even though we were constantly on the run, Romeo, I never felt more alive. No matter what danger we were in, just being near you made me feel safe and happy. Just holding your hand made my heart race.
I know that you’re probably wondering why I am writing this letter instead of telling you all of this to your face. You’re thinking that it would be easier to just confront you and get everything out in the open. And normally, you would be right. But Romeo, there is something that is stopping me from doing that and it’s fear. Fear of your reaction, fear of losing you. Yes, Romeo, even after everything that has happened, I am still afraid of losing you.
I know that we come from two different worlds and that our families are sworn enemies, but Romeo, I cannot help who I love. And I know that you feel the same way about me. So please, Romeo, do not throw this letter away. Read it, and think about what I am saying. And then maybe, just maybe, you will find a way to forgive me.
I’m not sure what it is about you that makes me so attracted to you, Giselle. When I first laid eyes on you at the ball at my mansion just a few days ago, I thought you were the most beautiful creature God could have ever created. What we had was hard.
Romeo, I’ve already gone over everything for you again. Because of you and I am certain we both know that this is the worst place I can be right now. I’ve dedicated my life to you, and not for one second do I regret any of it. Trying to persuade myself that what occurred in the last few days never happened has been difficult for me.
I want to forget that I found you with another woman, but I can’t. The pain is still too fresh. Romeo, I need you. Please come back to me.
My dearest Juliet,
There are no words that can describe how much I miss you. Every day without you is torture. I think about you all the time and I can’t stand being away from you for even a moment. Seeing you with another man was the worst thing that has ever happened to me. I know it was just a misunderstanding but it still hurts so much. I am nothing without you, Juliet. Please forgive me and come back to me. I promise things will be this time. I will do anything you want, just please come back to me.
I’ve been thinking about us for the past week. I adore you, Romeo, to the point that it’s too much. At this moment, I can’t even consider picking up my life and moving on without you in it. I believe fate brought us together. It was also what caused our separation. Everything happens for a reason, according to fate.
I look down at the ground with tears streaming down my face, trying to comprehend all I have lost. I don’t know how much time goes by before he appears again. He’s always there like a protector since long ago, so we can never be alone… Then one day suddenly, it will happen when fate kicks in and destiny brings you back to me – One day.
Take excellent care of yourself so that I do not have to worry about you as much as possible. I really hope that our UN-ending love may help us over this barrier once more. A piece of me died with our separation. You are both loved and remembered by me.
