Thomas was the swoonworthy Welsh poet who brought us "Do not go gentle into that good night" and "And death shall have no dominion."

He also wrote one of the most beautiful love letters of all time.

I love you so much I'll never be able to tell you; I'm frightened to tell you. I can always feel your heart. Dance tunes are always right: I love you body and soul: — and I suppose body means that I want to touch you & be in bed with you, & I suppose soul means that I can hear you & see you & love you in every single, single thing in the whole world asleep or awake.
