The little prince sat down on a rock and looked up into the sky.
"I wonder," he said, "if the stars are lit up so each other can find his own, someday. Look at my planet--it's just overhead. But so far away!"
"It's lovely," the snake said. "What have you come to Earth for?"
"I'm having difficulties with a flower," the little prince said.
"Ah!" said the snake.
And they were both silent.
"Where are the people?" the little prince finally resumed the conversation. "It's a little bit lonely in the desert..."
"It's also lonely with people," said the snake.
---The Little Prince by ANTOINE DE SANT-EXUPERY
Because of missing, I took the very long fly and came back to Mexico.
When I arrived at the Guadalajara airport, I hesitated.
I realized there is no one waiting for me...
All the unknown Spanish words and strange faces were around me, and I was so lonely.
When the night came, I stayed in the hotel.
I heard the happy noisy talking voices from the lobby.
It was so quiet in my room...
When the sun arrived, I walked in the street.
I was surrounded by the unknown language and strange faces again.
I push the heavy door open, and I went inside the bookstore.
And then I found the Mexican edition of "El Principito."
I took "El Principito" with me and walked around the streets.
Mexican people looked at me and smiled.
Three years ago when I left Mexico I said, "When you miss me, I will be back."
And I finally knew the reason why I was here.
I missed their lovely smiles so much, so I came back from such far far away.
I came back not because someone here missed me.
I came back only because I missed here.
