Recovering What Has Been Lost

There is only the fight to recover what has been lost
And found and lost again and again;
and now under conditions
That seem unpropitious.
But perhaps neither gain nor loss.
For us, there is only the trying.
The rest is not our business.

T. S. Eliot from East Coker
quoted in Summer Island
by Kristin Hannah
