    Learn With Every Goodbye


    After a while, you learn the subtle difference

    and between holding a hand and chaining a soul,

    And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning

    And company doesn't mean security,

    And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts

    And presents aren't promises,

    And you begin to accept your defeats

    With the grace of a woman,

    not the grief of a child,

    And 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

    And 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.

    Mine comes later this year, and as time drags on I've got to the point where I'll be glad to put it behind me.

    Love the profile, btw - living life and wearing out the body.
    That touched me places you can hardly imagine.

    Hey there Sparky. It will be OK, everything happens for a reason.

    Walk out of that courthouse and breathe the fresh air, go have a nice cup of coffee at your favorite cafe, and just relax.

    Enjoy life. Amen.
