After Awhile

After awhile you learn the subtle difference between 
holding a hand and chaining a soul. 

And you learn that love doesn't mean possession 
and company doesn't mean security. 
And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts, 
and presents aren't promises and you accept your defeats 
with your head up and your eyes ahead 
with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child. 
And you learn to build your roads today, 
Because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans, 
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight. 
And after awhile 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 learn ... with every goodbye you learn.
