At the airport,I looked closely at the face of my son,Daniel,his backpack by his side.We were saying good-bye. In a few hours he would be flying to France to_41_a different life.It was a transitional（过渡期的）time in Daniel's life.I wanted to leave him some_42_words.However,nothing came from my_43_and this was not the first time I had let such a moment_44_.Past memories came_45_on me.
When Daniel was five,I took him to the school-bus stop on his first day of kindergarten.He_46_me-as he did now."What is it going to be like,Dad?Will I be okay?"And then he walked up the_47_of the bus and disappeared inside.And the bus drove away.And I had said nothing.
A decade or so later,a similar_48_appeared.I drove him to college.I tried to think of something to say to give him_49_and confidence as he started this new life.Again,words_50_me.
Now,as I stood before him,I thought of Daniel's grandfather and those_51_opportunities in my life.How many times have we all let such moments pass?
My father and I loved each other.Yet,I always_52_never hearing him put his_53_into words and never having the memory of that moment.Now,I could feel my hands sweat and my throat tighten.Why is it so_54_to tell a son something from the heart?
My mouth turned dry,and I knew I would be able to speak out only a few words_55_."Daniel,"I said,"if I could have picked,I would have picked you."That's all I could say.I wasn't sure he understood what I_56_.Then he came toward me and threw his arms around me.For a moment,the world and all its people stopped,and there was just Daniel and me.He was saying something,_57_my tears rolled down,and I couldn't understand what he was saying. All I could_58_was the stubble（胡茬）on his chin as his face_59_against mine.And then,the moment ended.What I had said to Daniel was clumsy.It was nothing.And yet,it was_60_.
