Holding On

The things I believe in:

reason and faith

love and pity

gratitude and generosity

truth and patience

The things I have:

family and love

words and pictures

food and wine

prayers and lights

The things I’ll miss:

family and light

sound and sight

meals and snacks

the sky and the sea

Things which will last:

the sun and moon

art and science

boxes of photos

DNA and love.
