English translation:some day
Explanation:
This is another possibility -- "een" is spelled with two e's for emphasis, "one day," rather than "en dag," which means "a day." But "some day" makes more sense in the context of a letter.

One day


Explanation:
En dag...................one day. The word "een" does not mean anything in Swedish. The extra "e" could possibly have been added for special intonation in order to emphasise that........... ONE day.........in the future.
