見えなくなるまで手を振るよ。I will wave at you as long as I can see you.

Today two of my friends and I went out. You know what made me think about being good friends? It was a little thing. The fact that you wave at your friends as long as you can see them.

When we were separated, one friend and I was heading for the same direction and the rest heading for another. Two of us saw the one off.
He once glanced back. We waved at him. In a few seconds he turned around again. We waved at him with our smile. In a few seconds he turned again, and we waved at him again... We did this maybe for 10 times! Two of us waved at him until we were not able to see him.

This is a small thing, but I realized that I always did this to my sweet friends unless I was in a big hurry. I want to see them and wish their safe back home as much as I can. I think this is one of the expressions that show one's feelings to their friends.

今日は夜2人の友達と遊びました。
帰りに1人を見送った時、見えなくなるまで手を振り続けました。
これってすごく温かいことだなって思いました。気が付いてみたら、いつも大事な友達を見えなくなるまで見送っていました。そしてそれを私にしてくれる友達は、とっても大事な人たちだと気付きました。
相手の無事を想う気持ち、寂しいから視界からいなくなってしまうまで目で追ってしまう気持ち。これは相手を想う気持ちとして、自然なことでしょう。

    Ha-ha, I like that! It makes sense, in a simple way, and that's always the best way. I would type more, but I will probably forget I even wrote this in the morning. It's 4 in the morning! Why do you send e-mails so late? And I was sleeping so well too! Ha-ha! Zzzzzz....

    Stupid Boy! Whoa Reiko! Aren't you the one who sent me the e-mail telling me to read the blog? The e-mail that arrived and woke me up at four in the morning? I think you did. Don't yell at me and call me stupid! You should go to bed earlier, it's bad to stay up so late. And why are you reading my comment at 2:30 in the morning? Huh!?! Ha-ha, just joking!
