Fragment

From In Blackwater Woods, by Mary Oliver:

To live in this world

you must be able
to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go.

  3. Yes. Yes.


    A thousand times, yes.



    You know loss as well as any, I know. I honor what you've come to know and how you bear it.




    We are all bound for the same destination.



    Bless you for your sweetness and your strength.
