Under the moon light we whispered the love everlasting Why did God choose to take you away from me? I can remember the streetlamps small-gliding?? dances we had My only wish is to have one more dance... Sorry, I am not 100% sure on what's being said for all of it. The words with two question marks after them are (somewhat) guesses.

    2. "I was watching a movie called 'The secret life of pet' today. I personally think this animation is made for children and adults (this is more than one adult). It's about pets; while their owners work during the day, the pets hang out just like human beings. The animators show in their work distinctive cat features very well. It always cracks me up when cat does "cat things". I used to watch this movie when I was babysitting my friend's kid last winter. So while I was watching this movie I had mixed feelings. I really miss the kid, holding the kid, watching this movie. He laughed a lot, and that made me smile, not because of the movie. Children really fill your heart with happiness. I wish I could make a jelly and peanut butter sandwich for him again. I loved when he whispered that he was hungry because he skipped his lunch, even though it was in the middle of the movie (happened in past so change verbs to past). I'd always put extra strawberry jam for him."

    2. My grandmother would tell me she loves me more than anyone all the time. She often took me to the back yard where you could see many kinds of trees. In the autumn, she would just stand on the brightly colored leaves, close her eyes and breath fresh air. She wouldn't say a word because it was so quiet and peaceful. I was standing next her and looking around. How gorgeous this place was. There were over 100 colors of nature and I could feel winter was almost here but all tree were whispering to enjoy this moment. This colorful view and comfortable temperature will be gone soon so just feel this happiness. It seemed like even autumn's soft air was lightly laughing, teasing and grazing my cheek.

    2. Very good overall, as usual, but I think there are some things that could be adjusted. ________________________________ I was non-verbally autistic as a child. Many people helped me out to communicate with others, so now I can speak. People often ask me what it's like to be an adult with autism. There is one thing I always feel, and that is like I'm in a tiny goldfish bowl filled with water. I can't breath but I can see the outside world through the glass bowl. I don't remember when, but one day I stopped fighting to get out of the bowl - you could say I sort of gave up. Autism has been inside (of) me since I was a kid; it hasn't changed, but the looks from people have changed. Autism is an invisible disability. I would have meltdowns in public places and I could hear people whispering "What's wrong with this girl who looks normal?" I would be stressed out just because a bus was late 5 minutes or my schedule changed at the last minute. People can be very kind and nice to me, but they eventually leave me alone because they live outside (of) the goldfish bowl and (they) don't want to drown in the autistic world with me. You see, I can see you, but you can't hear me, can you? As a child my voice often almost came out of me, but I didn't know how to speak when I was drowning in the water and couldn't breath. I can see you, I just want you to keep looking at me and be patient. ___________________________ The words in parentheses are words that you can choose to include in your writing, but if omitted the writing will still sound natural.

    2. One of the lessons that I've learned in my life is that people repeatedly come into your life and leave, which means you have to say goodbye to people over and over again - even people [you are / you're] close to. It may sound weird to many (people), but I feel the same thing towards my family and friends. [hmm?] [hmm?] Before I knew it, I started to try to not get too close to anyone. When I lived in Canada, there was always a homeless person outside (of) my station sitting on the ground on my way to the shopping mall. He seemed to be in his late 30's, but [obviously he / he obviously] hadn't [taken a shower / showered] in at least a couple months or been eating well. People would sometimes put coins [into / in] his paper cup, but usually they tried [not to / to not] look at him. He was there almost everyday, even during the very harsh winter in Canada which was so cold I could see his breath. One day I gave him a hot coffee, a sandwich, and cookies instead of coins. It was the first time I actually saw his eyes and talked to him. He had deep green eyes, like a foggy snowing forest, and very light brownish-almost-golden hair. Even though he was grimy and [wrapped himself up in very dirty blankets / wrapped up in very dirty blankets], I could tell he must've had a very good looking face. I couldn't stop wondering [what made him into / why he was] a homeless person. Since that day I always tried to give him some coins whenever I went to (go to) the shopping mall. He started to recognize me and would smile when I put some coins [into / in] his cup and say "God bless you." The day I left the town I went to the shopping mall, not [for shopping / to shop], but to give all my coins to him. I stood low in front of him and put all my coins into his paper cup, trying not to make noise [because / as / since] there were other homeless people near him. He just stared at his paper cup and me for a while, then whispered "Thank you" with a huge smile. I wasn't sure if he was using [all of his money / all the money people gave him] for alcohol or drugs, hopefully he doesn't have to sit on the ground on snowy days anymore now though. The funny thing is that I felt very connected with this homeless person, more than any friend I had made in Canada. [hmm?] He wasn't expecting anything from me, and neither was I [but / except] a little bit of kindness. Whenever I had a rough day, with 2 or 3 dollars, I could feel better because of his "God bless you." Hopefully [my little money / the little money I gave him] helped him out a bit too. __________________ 【Notes】 1. The multiple [hmm?] in my reply signify sentences I'm confused about and need your feedback on in order to properly correct. I will now individually talk about the sentences and my confusion with them. [I know for most of people their own family always comes first and I feel a bit envious that they have the family that cannot live without.] My confusion is about the part "they have the family that cannot live without" part. Are you saying that they can't live without their family, or their family can't live without them? [For me, when people get to know each other and start to care about each other, they become as important as my family.] The first half of the sentence and the second half don't seem to make sense together. When I read the "when people get to know each other and start to care about each other" part, I don't think you're talking about yourself getting to know and care about other people, or other people doing that to you, but the part "they become as important as my family" does make it seem like you're talking about yourself in this act of getting to know other people and caring about them. Could you maybe explain a little bit more what you're trying to say? [He knew I will be leaving from the beginning and I knew he knew that.] Could you explain this sentence a little bit? Did you tell him when you first met him that you would eventually be leaving Canada? 2. In the third paragraph you quote the homeless man saying "God bless you", but you put a period both in the quote and after it. In American English we typically put the end punctuation within the quote if it ends the sentence. In British English I hear it's typically put afterwards, but in either case there should only be one. For example: The old man got mad at me, yelling "Get off my lawn!" So, adding end punctuation is unnecessary, and is considered ungrammatical. 3. In the last sentence of the third paragraph you quote the homeless man again, this time quoting him saying "Thank you." The problem here is that the quote doesn't end the sentence, so there shouldn't be a period in the quote. I await your reply to my "hmm?" questions, and if you have any questions about my corrections feel free to ask.
