@ Jackieliang: You are mostly correct, but the English translation is a bit off -
Instead of "I missed home so much, to touch your Gentleness and kindness", it should say "I missed home, and the feeling of your kind and gentle touch so much."

"to touch your Gentleness and kindness" is not English, but Chinglish. In translating, you need not turn all verbs into nouns by adding -ness. You can use -ness words but sparingly. And sometimes you need to turn the nouns in the opposite word order than Chinese, when translating in English so the sentence, phrase, or statement will make sense. Sometimes, things are omitted in certain languages, so when translating into English, use context to add those words.
