Years ago when I was a newly single, divorced mother of two little daughters I joined the local chapter of a group called “Parents Without Partners.” In one of the newsletters there was a poem that has served me well over the many, many years. It is so eloquent yet says so much with so few words. It speaks volumes and I wanted to share. The poem is called “Comes the Dawn” by Veronica Shorffstall.

Comes the Dawn

Veronica Shorffstall

After awhile you learn the subtle difference
between holding a hand and chaining a soul.
And you learn that love 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 you head up and your eyes open.
With the grace of maturity, 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 awhile 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 that you really do have worth.
And you learn and learn and learn ….
With every goodbye you learn.
