It is an anonymous note. Each sentence, may well be a long-awaited reunion.

In the middle of the night, a letter was slipped through my room door.
Early in the morning before going out, I rest gently the reply on father’s desk.
Returning home in the evening, I discovered that the letter was well folded and placed beside my bed; opening it, a few more lines was found.

As a child, or becoming parents, we have been learning what may be the best interactions that suit us.
As we grow up, when we own our family and career, it seems that one should know more about expressing love.
We are always like a child in our parents’ eyes.
And yet do you remember when was the last time you talked to your parents, what was it for, and in what occasion?

When it comes to those we care about the most, we sometimes shy away from sharing feelings or not talk about anything, just because we worry about saying the wrong thing.

Here, artists from different fields, share their ways of expression, which may be different in forms, and yet the thing they all share is the sincerest and accurate words crafted with the selfless mind extended to the person they care about the most.

Youth and life fades.
One day, we would lost each other.
At the present moment that can no longer be retrieved, if it is for a complete life without regret, so to choose one person and one sincerest message to speak to, then, who would it would be?
