A secret love letter has been uncovered after a boy dismantled a bench made by his dad, shortly after his death.

He found the piece of writing engraved under the workbench and shared the image on Imgur, where it has gained more than 1.4 million views.

The Imgur user said:

“My dad passed away on February 26th at the age of 51 from a ruptured artery.He made this workbench for my mum when she got into metal engraving."

HIs father Mason thought he would do some engraving himself, and the result? Touching many hearts across the world with his words...

“I love you Becca. Whatever day this is, I hope it’s a good one. God truly answered my prayers the day he gave me you. I know that these days are the best I’ll ever have, and I’m glad you’re in them. I’m not sure if you’ll ever see this, but if you do, just know that I love you very much. If there is one thing I want in life, it is to be as good as you as you are to me. If I can do that, I’ll be the happiest man alive. – I love you beautiful wife – Mason.”
