After a While...



After a While, you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul
and you learn that love doesnt mean leaning and company doesn't always mean security.
And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts and presents aren't always 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 plan 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 good-bye you learn - Veronica A. Shoffstall

What a lovely passage. Surprised to see a blog post, it's been so long, I hope it means you are doing well. I've suffered the most soul destroying break-up and its just over a year now and still so difficult, today's post is very meaningful.
