After a While

Posted on: March 27, 2010


After a While

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 a 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

That you really are strong

And you really do have worth

And you learn

And you learn

With every goodbye you learn.
