I was able to stand before you again on December 30, 2016
We met again like this
I ran for more than 10 years without any rest
My time embodied both the ecstatic laughter and bitter loneliness
You are the one who held my hands and lifted me up when I wanted to fold
So I didn’t fear the separation.
I pushed myself harder and faster to create more memories
“How can I spend more time with you?”
That was the only thought I had in my mind before enlistment.
“What if you stop thinking about me?”
Those small thoughts made me restless and anxious
Looking back, I guess you were stronger than me at that time.
Will I be able to feel them again?
I missed you so much
Nothing else in the world can replace that feeling
I savored our memories as I counted the days
And we met again like this
My time (in Army) was more precious
Because I had the place to comeback and clear reason to return
Thank you for waiting
