reasons to live one more, the next, and another day

“If I can stop one heart from breaking”

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one Life the Aching,
Or cool one in Pain,

Or help one fainting Robin
Unto his Nest again,
I shall not live in Vain.

—Emily Dickinson.
