A poem I love...... and means a lot to me, right now!

Comes the Dawn

“After a while you learn the subtle difference

Between holding a hand and chaining a soul

And you learn love does not mean leaning

And company does not mean security

And you learn kisses are not contracts

And presents are not promises

And you begin to accept your defeats with your head held high, and your eyes open

With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child

And you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrows ground

Is too uncertain for plans

And futures have a way of falling down mid-flight

After a while you learn even sunshine ... burns if you get too much

So you plant your own garden

And you decorate your own soul

Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers

And you learn you really can endure

That you really have worth

And you learn and learn...

With every goodbye,

You learn.”
