Immortal Beloved

Last night I watched a movie titled "Immortal Beloved". It's a story about the miysterious love letters written by Ludwig van Beethoven, found after his dead. The letter addressed to his secret lover, that no one can tell who she really was.

In his live, Beethoven has relationships with some women. But it never end up good, as he never married one. Those women also had inspired him for the music he composed.

In this film above, they finally know that this woman is his sister-in-law, Johanna, that he had fell in love with before she's got married with his brother. But previously I've read that this mysterious woman is a friend of Johanna, Antonie Brentano.
The last guess is for the woman who inspired him to write his melancholy piece of "Moonlight Sonata", Countess Giulietta Guicciardi.

Actually still no one knows who she was, the secret lover...

...,

Good morning, on July 7

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...

I can live only wholly with you or not at all.

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...

...

ever thine
ever mine
ever ours...

Let me wrap you in my arms of love so pure and true...i shall never leave your soul, even if the bitterness of cruel uncertainty seem to have left you in doubt...

Let your thoughts go out to me, let me hear and feel your joy and sorrows...for i am infatuated and am foolishly in love...

If I could fly to the heavens in the sky, i will take you with me to land of spirits hidden between the clouds, the land you dream of, where death...shall never do us part...
