"Why do you wait for him, Sarah? You should just move on.
There's no point. He's never going to come back and you know it!"
Carla said. How could she understand? Bobby is the only one for
me. My family keeps telling me that he has been gone too long
and may never come back. It is true that it has been a long time.
Five years since that first summer we met, but I refuse to
believe that he will never come back. He isn't dead. I would know
if he was; I would feel it.
"It doesn't matter what you say, Carla. I am not changing my
mind." She just huffed and stalked away. Now I am working on
writing my next letter to Bobby.
There is so much that I wish to

I love you lots. Come home
I couldn't find the right words to write to him. I knew
though that even if I just wrote hello, that Bobby would
understand. Maybe a different beginning…
Time moves so slow when you are gone.
My heart beats too fast whenever I think of you. Everyday it
seems like the stars collide with the moon and shatter the
universe until all that is left is your face. I know time must

I think about you every night and every
day, hoping that you do also. Everyone I know tells me to give up

And I cannot wait to see your face
again and make sure that you are real and something that I

doing the right thing. Soon it will all be worth the waiting. I
miss you my love. Come home to me soon. I love you. That I will
always promise. My heart belongs to you.
Yours truly, with all my
It was 3 years later that I received a returning letter. The
letter I received however was not the letter I was expecting. It
wasn't from Bobby and it said that he had gone missing in action
3 years earlier. I cried a bucketful of tears, and then my eye
caught on some words: Bobby
did get your letter 2 days before he went missing and was
planning to write back. The words made me cry even
harder, but this time out of happiness.
