"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.
Dear Bobby,
There is so much that I wish to say.
I miss you so much.
I love you lots. Come home soon.
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…
Dear Bobby,
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 continue on even though you aren't here.
I think about you every night and every day, hoping that you do also. Everyone I know tells me to give up on your return; to move on and search for someone more suitable. But who could be more suitable than you?
Through all this pain and sadness away from you, through all the letters you send to me, I know:
Through it all nobody gets me like you do.
And I cannot wait to see your face again and make sure that you are real and something that I imagined in order to stay happy. All the time I wonder if I am 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 love
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.
