After Awhile
After awhile you learn the subtle differences between holding a hand and chaining a soul. And you learn that love doesn't mean learning 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 open with the grace of an adult not the grief of a child.
 
And you learn to build your road on today because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans.
 
After awhile you learn even sunshine burns you when you get too much.
 
So 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 are strong and you really do have worth.
 
And you learn and you learn...
 
With every goodbye you learn!
