A “Rainer Maria Rilke” Poem:



You mustn’t be frightened

if a sadness

rises in front of you,

larger than any you have ever seen;

if an anxiety,

like light and cloud-shadows,

moves over your hands and over

everything you do.

You must realize that something is

happening to you,

that life has not forgotten you,

that it holds you in its hand

and will not let you fall.
