Holding on to anything is like holding on to your breath. You will suffocate. The only way to get anything in the physical universe is by letting go of it. Let go & it will be yours forever.
I have lost too much time
trying to remember you
when I should have
channeled all this energy
on recalling who I was
before you. I existed then,
I exist now, and I shall
continue to exist long
after you have tainted
everything I have ever
known about love and loss.

This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.
