Poem

I came upon this poem at The Gypsy's Corner and love it so much! It really speaks to my heart, so I decided to copy and post it here.

Comes the Dawn

After a while you learn the subtle
difference between holding a hand
and chaining a soul. And you learn
that loving doesn't mean
leaning and company isn't
security.

Kisses aren't contracts and
presents aren't promises.
After a while you begin to accept
your defeats with your head up and
your eyes open, with the grace of a
woman, not the grief of a child.

And you learn to build your roads
on today because tomorrow's
ground is too uncertain and the
inevitable has a way of crumbling
in mid-flight. After a while you
learn that even sunshine burns if
you stand too long in one place. So
you plant your own garden and
decorate your own soul instead of
waiting for someone else to bring
you flowers.

And you learn you really can
endure, that you really do have
worth. You learn that with every
good-bye comes the dawn.
