In your letter: tell your boss of your decision and explain why you are leaving explain what you have learnt from your current job and how you feel about leaving ask for a letter of reference

Dear Mr. Adam, I am coming to you through
this
letter of resignation to let you know the whereabouts of my decision and to thank you for everything. I would like to start by saying I am grateful for all your support and the opportunities provided by
this
company and by you for me. All my peers were great, friendly and
overall
amazing. Even though I am elated to embark on new endeavours, I could not help but feel heartbroken about leaving all my work friends behind. The experiences I had working with
this
company were invaluable for my personal and professional development, I can clearly perceive that now. From learning how to negotiate a sale with a client to developing and deploying new systems, my adventure here was fruitful and filled with profound moments. The reason I am leaving revolves around only one thing, new endeavors; I'm looking to bolster and forge a new future for myself now that I feel ready to reach my distant dreams; my future is right before me and I am reaching for it.
This
would not be possible if not for all my time with
this
amazing company I am leaving today. Thank you very much, James.
