After A While – August 13.2012 Written by Veronica A. Shoffstaff

After a while, you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul

And you learn that loves doesn’t mean leaning,
And company doesn’t mean security,

And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
And presents are promises

And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes wide open

With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child
And you learn to build all your roads today
Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans.
And futures have a way of falling down in midflight.

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 learn….
With every goodbye you learn.
