This photo, taken in 1945, captures a touching moment: a young girl and a soldier embracing each other as they say goodbye in front of a railway station in the United States. The station sign in the background reads ‘NEW HOPE’, which seems to symbolise the lovers' hope for a better future and their strong belief in the future.

In this photo, the girl is hugging the soldier tightly, with her legs slightly raised, apparently unwilling to let go.

The soldier is also hugging her tightly, holding her in his arms as long as he can. The body language of the two men revealed a deep sense of attachment and reluctance, as if this moment of separation was a very difficult one for them. The girl's dress fluttered in the wind, as if adding a touch of romance to their love.

The soldier's uniform was neat and tidy, his hat on his head, the rank insignia on his shoulder glittering in the sunlight.

All of this symbolises his sense of duty and responsibility as a soldier. The soldier in this photo is probably about to go off to war, leaving his beloved family and friends behind. The young girl, on the other hand, expresses her sadness and concern as she sees him off.

Behind them, an older man and woman look on with smiles on their faces as they watch the young lovers. Perhaps they were the girl's parents, or some kindly bystanders.

The smiles on their faces revealed a warm blessing and encouragement, as if to tell the young couple that no matter how difficult the road ahead, their love would conquer all.

The suitcases in front of the railway station stand silently, as if waiting for the soldiers to return. The suitcase is a symbol of travelling and a source of comfort for people on the move. When the soldier leaves, he takes away not only the luggage, but also the girl's worries and thoughts. The existence of the suitcase is also a symbol that he will return home one day with the memory of his hometown and his beloved.
