Comes The Dawn(Author Unknown)
After a while you learn thesubtle difference

Between holding a hand andchaining a soul,
And you learn that lovedoesn’t mean leaning
And company doesn’t meansecurity
,And you begin to understandthat kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head held high andyour eyes open,
With the grace of a woman,not the grief of a child,
You learn to build your roads
On today because tomorrow’s groundIs too uncertain for plans,
and futures haveA way of falling down inmid-flight.
After awhile you learn thateven sunshine
Burns if you get too much,
So you plant your own gardenand decorateYour own soul,
instead ofwaitingFor someone to bring youflowers.
And you learn that you reallycan endure,
That you really are strong
And you really do have worth
And you learn and learn…And learn,
With every good-bye you learn.
