After A While You Learn....

 the subtle difference between
holding a hand and changing a soul.
And you learn
that love doesn't mean leaning
and company doesn't always mean security.
And you begin to learn...
that a kiss is not a contract
and presents aren't promises
and you begin to accept your defeats
with your head up and your eyes ahead
with the strength of a man, 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 future has a way of falling down
in mid-flight.
And you learn that you really can endure
you really are strong
you really do have worth
and you learn
and you learn
with every goodbye, you learn...
