Me too, she whispered.

They were lying in bed, close to one another. Despite the movie playing in the T.V. and the loud sounds it made, all she could hear was her beating heart, which seemed to be beating at 100 m/h. All she could feel were his arms around her and his breath at her neck. All she could think was about him, together with her just as they were.

She tried to focus on the movie, Gosh, calm down. He'll notice. She closed her eyes and inhaled deeply. And just as she did, he whispered into her ear, ''I love you.'' And then it was just as if, the world had stopped. Everything went quiet, and that short phrase resonated in her mind. Her eyes widened and a broad smile appeared in her face.

She didn't hesitate to turn around and look at him. He looked nervous and anxious, waiting for a response. Just how hard did he try to be able to say that? It must have been scary. She looked into his eyes and asked, hoping to find some reassurance to what he said, which seemed too good to be true, ''R-Really?''

He smiled broadly as well, ''Yes, really. I love you.''

She could feel her eyes getting teary. Just how long did I wait to hear that? Just how hard did I try to be able to hear that? And now, he said it. He ... loves me back. Gosh, he loves me back. She wiped off the tears before they rolled down her cheeks and just kept on smiling. ''I love you, too.'' She buried her face in his chest, ''Gosh, I love you, too.''

She was the happiest she had ever been. And still is, because up to this day, he loves her back.

Missing you.

It's funny how just when I get to see you,
it feels as though I have to say goodbye.
Oh, how I loathe doing so.
If only, if only I could stay forever by your side.
There is nothing, absolutely nothing I want more than that.

I miss you when you are gone, I miss you when you are around.
Does that make sense? I simply miss you every time.
I struggle through each day, impatient, for that one time
when I get to see you, to talk to you.

There is nothing more soothing to me than the sound of your voice.
If I am ever feeling frustrated or lonely or sad or scared,
Listening to your voice saying ''Everything will be alright,''
Calms me down, as a warm embrace on a chilly night.

There is nothing more comforting to me than your arms around me.
Whenever I feel lost, whenever I feel stressed, whenever I feel down,
Your arms around me, your body's warmth, your beating heart -
They make me feel safe, with you I know I'll be okay.

And those things, those two little things -
Listening to you and touching you,
They are the things I wish for the most.
The things that I want the most.
The things that I miss the most.

Sometimes I start thinking, About us.
About everything we have gone through.
About everything we are going through.
And about everything we will live together in the future.

And those are the times, when I miss you the most.
When I remember our silly games or our random talks.
When I think about your caring touch.
And recall the sound of your lively laugh.

Oh, I miss you darling.
I miss you so very much.
And it kills me,
being so close yet so far apart.
I just can't wait for the days when
It's no longer a good bye, but a good night.

So, darling .... Good night!

And remember, I love you.
I love you, I love you, I love you.

To the moon and back.
