If you permanently deleted it, you cannot get it back. However, if you just deleted it, go to your trash, find it, and move it back into your inbox.

Step by step instructions:

If you've deleted a message permanently, by clicking Delete Forever in your Spam or Trash, it isn't possible to recover the message.

If you've moved a message to Trash, by clicking Delete, but it's been fewer than 30 days and you haven't permanently deleted it, follow these steps to put it back in your inbox:

  1. Sign in to Gmail.
  2. Click Trash along the left side of any Gmail page. (If you don't seeTrash along the left side of your Gmail page, click more aboveContacts on the left side of the page.)
  3. Locate the message you'd like to move to your inbox, and check the box next to the sender's name.
  4. Click Move to Inbox.

If the message is no longer in trash (which I wouldn't expect after a year) then it can't be recovered.  Sorry.
