Holding On

I'm holding on now because that is all I can do.

Holding on to my children.

Holding on to my past.

Holding on to memories of the way things used to be.

Holding on to love.

Holding on to the irrational.

Holding on to what I can feel fading away. 

It's like trying to stop the rain from falling.  I try and try, but I can feel the water slipping though my fingers. 

Doomed to failure.  Attempting the impossible.  Knowing it won't work.

And yet I find myself doing it anyway.

I have to hold on to hope. 

Hope is all you have when there is nothing else left.

I wish there was something more to reach for. 

There isn't.

For now, I will keep holding on.

It's all I can do.
