Life Lessons: Comes The Dawn

Comes The Dawn
Veronica Shoffstall

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 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 open
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child
And you learn to build all your roads on
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 soil
Instead of waiting for someone to
Bring you flowers
And you learn that you really can endure
That you really are strong
And you learn and learn
With every goodbye you learn.
