Reading  All our Names, by Dinaw Mengestu I came across this

“so I did the only thing I could think of. I picked his clothes up from the floor. I folded his pants and shirts just as my mother had done for my father and for me–a seemingly insignificant gesture that was still one of the things I missed most about living so far away from home. It had something to do with knowing that even in your sleep you were watched over, and that each morning , no matter what mistakes you might have made, you had the right to begin again.”
