When Nothing Is Left
It seems like nothing is left when those you love are gone.
After a death of a loved one, you're particularly clumsy and awkward as if you've acquired a unique ability to trip over any and everything.
When my father died, I would often hear a mantra echoing in my mind, telling me to "just hold on..." as I stumbled through my life. But I didn't know what I was supposed to be holding on to.
And Then I Remembered
There really is nothing to hold on to.
In the end, there is only Love.
And even that, you don't hold on to it. You just "be."
