" Comes the Dawn"

After a while, you learn the subtle difference
between holding a hand and chaining a soul.
And you learn that loving doesn’t mean leaning
and company isn’t security.
(Kisses aren’t contracts and presents aren’t promises.)

After a while you begin to accept your defeats
with your head up and your eyes open,
with the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child.
And you learn to build your roads on today
because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain
and the inevitable has a way of crumbling in mid-flight.

After a while you learn that even sunshine burns
if you stand too long in one place.

So, you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul
instead of waiting for someone else to bring you flowers.
And you learn you really can endure,
that you really do have worth.
You learn that with every good-bye comes the dawn.

"Comes the Dawn" FYI......

" Comes the Dawn"

Aprender a Aprender
Y UNO APRENDE Después de un tiempo, uno aprende la sutil diferencia entre sostener una mano y encadenar un alma, -- y uno aprende ... que el amor no significa acostarse (recostarse), y una compañía no significa seguridad, y uno empieza a aprender... Que los besos no son contratos, y los regalos no son promesas. -- Y uno empieza a aceptar sus derrotas con la cabeza alta y los ojos abiertos Y uno aprende a construir todo sus caminos en el hoy porque el terreno de mañana es demasiado inseguro para planes... Y los futuros tienen una forma de caerse a la mitad. -- Y después de un tiempo... uno aprende que “sí” es demasiado, hasta el calorcito del sol quema. -- Así que uno planta su propio jardín y decora su propia alma, en lugar de esperar a que alguien le traiga flores. Y uno aprende que realmente puede aguantar que uno realmente es fuerte, que uno realmente vale, y uno aprende y aprende… y con cada diaa (adio's) uno aprende.
