After a while, you learn
the subtle difference
between holding a hand
and changing a soul.
And you learn
that love doesnt mean leaning
and company doesnt mean security.
And you beginn to learn
that kisses arent contracts,
and presents arent promises.
And you beginn 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 built all your roads on today
because tomorrows ground is
too uncertain for plans.
And futures hava a way of falling down
in midflight
After a while, you learn
that even sunshine burns if you ask 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 are strong.
And you really do have worth.
And you learn.
And you learn.
With every goodbye
you learn.
