And you learn

After awhile 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 a grace of a women, not the grief of a child
And you learn
To build all your roads on today
Because tomorrows ground is
Too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down
In mid flight
After awhile you learn
That even sunshine burns
So you plant your own garden
And decorate your own soul
Instead of waiting for someone
To bring you flowers
And you learn you really can endure
You really are strong
You really do have worth
And your learn with every goodbye
