Hold On

Hold on to what is good
even if it is a handful of earth

Hold on to what you believe
even if it is a tree that stands by itself
Hold on to what you must do
even if it is a long way from here

Hold on to life
even when it is easier letting go

Hold on to my hand
even when I have gone away from you

Welcome to My Secret Garden

This garden was a surprise to me.

I hadn't known it was here all along, trapped behind an ivy-covered wall, and shut behind a heavy door. I had only to find the key. A sweet bird showed me where it was buried and now I have unlocked the entrance.

What will I find as I push the door open?
