Comes the Dawn

Comes the Dawn

After awhile you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul.
And you learn that love 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 you head up and your eyes open
With the grace of maturity, not the grief of a child.
And you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans,
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After awhile you learn that even sunshine burns if you get 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 that you really do have worth.
And you learn and learn and learn...
With every goodbye you learn.

  1. Your last entry caught my eye. I have read Think and Grow Rich a number of times and get new things out of it each time I read it.

    I like the positive vibe of the work you just shared it shows a positive mental attitude underneath it which is great.

    Keep blogging you are doing GREAT!


I enjoy receiving your respectful comments :)
