After a comes the dawn

After a while you learn
the subtle difference between ... See More holding a hand and chaining a soul,
and you learn that love doesn't mean leaning
and company doesn't mean security,
and you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts
and presents aren't promises, and you begin to accept your defeats
with your head up and your eyes ahead,
with the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,
and you learn to build all of your roads on today because tomorrow's ground
is too uncertain for plans,and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure... That you really do have worth.
And you learn and you learn...With every goodbye you learn
