What are the happiest words that have ever been said? he asked me once.
We were so young then.
That's easy, I said. The happiest words are, "I love you."
He thought about this for a moment while he adjusted the band on his watch.
Ok, he answered. Then what are the saddest words that have ever been said?
I answered more quietly this time, because I didn't want him to hear the fear in my voice.
The saddest words are
"Don't leave me."
