After A While
After a while you learn the subtle difference
        between holding a hand and sharing a life.
And you learn that love doesn't mean possession
        and company doesn't mean security
        and loneliness is universal.
And you learn that kisses aren't contracts
        and presents aren't promises
        and you begin to accept you defeats with you head
        up and your eyes open, with the grace of a woman,
        not the grief of a child.
And you learn to build your hope on today
        as the future has a way of falling apart in mid-flight
        because tomorrows ground can be too uncertain for plans;
        yet each step taken in a new direction creates a path
        toward the promise of a brighter dawn.
And you learn that even sunshine burns
        if you get too much.
So plant your own garden and nourish your own soul
        instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that love, true love, always has joys and sorrows,
        seems ever present, yet is never quite the same,
        becoming more than love and less than love,
        so difficult to define.
And you learn that through it all you really can endure,
        that you really are strong, that you really have value
        and you learn and grow...
With every goodbye you learn.
