Happiness is within you…

Please excuse me while I exhibit another music-related letter, again courtesy of the near-bottomless Hard Rock Memorabilia vaults. Today’s poetic gem was penned rather beautifully by the late Jimi Hendrix on an unknown date, to a girlfriend he affectionately called ‘little girl’. It’s all at once exceptionally sweet, gently encouraging and yet another example of the musician’s effortless cool.

Even his handwriting sings.

Transcript follows.

Thanks to Jeff at Hard Rock for another wonderful letter. As always, a visit to the Hard Rock Memorabilia website is recommended to all, and don’t forget to pay them a visit on Facebook.


little girl…..

happiness is within you….so unlock the chains from your heart and let yourself grow—
like the sweet flower you are…..
I know the answer—
Just spread your wings and set yourself

Love to you forever

Jimi Hendrix
