After a While by Veron. Shoffstica Aall

After a While
By Veron. Shoffstica Aall
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 doesn't always 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 your head up and your eyes ahead
with the grace of woman, 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 a while 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
you really are strong
you really do have worth
and you learn
and you learn
with every goodbye, you learn...

Both Sides Now

Both Sides Now” Hayley Westenra
Rows and flows of angel hair

And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhereI’ve looked at clouds that way
But now they only block the sun

They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
Clouds got in my way
I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now

From up and down, and still somehowIt’s cloud illusions
I recallI really don’t know clouds at all
Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels

The dizzy dancing way that you feel
As every fairy tale comes realI’ve looked at love that way
But now it’s just another show

And you leave ‘em laughing when you go
And if you care, don’t let them know
Don’t give yourself away
I’ve looked at love from both sides now

From give and take, and still somehow
It’s love’s illusions I recallI really don’t know love
Really don’t know love at all
Tears and fears and feeling proud

To say “I love you” right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I’ve looked at life that way
Oh but now old friends they’re acting strange

And they shake their heads
And they tell me that I’ve changed
Well something’s lost but something’s gained
In living every day
I’ve looked at life from both sides now

From win and lose and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all

From Dallaslin;
Always remember to forget
The things that made you sad.
But never forget to remember
The things that made you glad.
Always remember to forget

The friends that proved untrue.
But never forget to remember
Those that have stuck by you.
Always remember to forget

The troubles that passed away.
But never forget to remember
The blessings that come each day.
