After a while

After a while you learn the subtle difference between

holding a hand and chaining a soul

And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning and

company doesnt mean security

And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contacts

and presents aren’t promises,

And you begin to accept your defeats with your head

up and your eyes open with grace of an adult

not grief of a child

And you learn to build all your roads on today

because tomorrow’s grounds is too uncertain for plans

After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if

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 that you really do have worth

And you learn and learn

with every good-bye you learn.
