Ever Thine, Ever Mine, Ever Ours

Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us ...

Yes, I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits ...

No one else can ever possess my heart - never - never - Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves ... Your love makes me at once the happiest and the unhappiest of men ...

My angel, I have just been told that the mailcoach goes every day - therefore I must close at once so that you may receive the letter at once ...

Be calm - love me - today - yesterday - what tearful longings for you - you - you - my life - my all - farewell. Oh continue to love me - never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.

Ever thine,

Ever mine,

Ever ours.

... The Immortal Beloved Letters, Ludwig van Beethoven

in the end Big told Carrie- "ever thine, ever mine, ever ours" it was so romantic

TheHoopoe said...

FYI to all posting comments - this has nothing to do with Sex and the City (although they did hijack this letter for the film). This is Ludwig van Beethoven writing to his "immortal beloved." No one knows the identity of the woman, however there are a series of letters from Herr Conductor to his love. The germans say she belonged to another and that was what kept them from each other. But please appreciate the love behind the letter, not the blockbuster hit. Carrie and Big's love came from the minds of writers, whereas Beethoven's letter came from his heart. Enjoy.

This was a book Carrie was reading poems of great artist the night before her marriage to Big, and she told him if he couldn't write anything then to say forever thine, forever mine. It was in the 1st movie
