Yesterday while I was looking for some things I had misplaced I came upon this piece titled "COMES THE DAWN" I do not know who wrote this and I am not sure how I came to have a copy of it. I think, but Im not sure, that a dear friend of mine gave this to me way back in the early 90's while I was going through some very rough times in my personal life. But no matter how or why or where I came upon this I felt it is worth sharing with all of you. You may have seen this before but it never hurts to reread something that is so true. I do hope you wil enjoy.
"COMES THE DAWN
After a while you learn the subtle difference 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 your head up and your eyes open
With the grace of a woman or man, and 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
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.
My sincerest hope for all of you is that the lessons will be fairly painless and that you will learn to grow from every circumstance life throws your way! Be safe enjoy each moment and remember to do something nice for someone today just because you can! "HUGS" to all.
