I heard this in an audiobook I was listening to while waiting to pick up the J-Man from school. An elementary school parking lot is not the most ideal place to get emotional, but I doubt anyone noticed, and who cares anyway.
It feels like it was written for parents like us. It’s beautiful, and it speaks volumes to me right now. Maybe it will do the same for you.
Hold on to what is good, even if it’s a handful of dirt.
Hold on to what you believe, even if it’s a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do, even if it’s a long way from here.
Hold on to life, even when it’s easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand, even when I have gone away from you.
