Because of business, my parents have been working elsewhere. I was raised up by grandmother. They often come back once a year and stay about 3 weeks. In the past few years, I have said goodbye with them many times. I thought I won't be sad since I have used to it. Yet I still cannot help crying because I miss them so much.

One Sentence to Express Love

Which sentence would you like to express your love? I always have no idea about this question, for there are tons of sentences to use.

About three months ago, I was in my hometown and prepared to study aboard. When I was packing my luggage, I pictured an America life with curious and excited. I thought I was ready to explore an unknown and amazing life, but things are always unexpected.

On the afternoon of departure, my mother and I went together the airport.

“Taking care of yourself.” said my mom with lingering sadness on her face.

“I will…”

Then, there was a long silence, for neither of us wanted to say a word. If we did, we won’t hold our tear any more. It was hard to say goodbye with my mom, even though I had been doing it for decade. Maybe I held my sad tear too long, so that I had a serious fever when I was in plane. I felt dizzy and faint and could not do anything but lying on the seat. My nose was stuffy and hard to breathe. At that moment, I badly hoped that my mother was there. Things would become better if my mom were there. I covered my head with blanket and wept. After took a few pills, I fell asleep.

Which sentence would you like to express your love? Now, I would choose “I miss you”.
