for lovers (and everyone else)

Finishing my packing, tomorrow I leave for Andanças, the international music and dance festival in Portugal. Be back in 10 days.
I found the original poem from where this very famous quote (in bold) comes from. Beautiful read! :)

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 understand that kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head held high and your eyes open,
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,
You learn to build your roads
On today because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans,
and futures have a way of falling down inmid-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…And learn,
With every good-bye you learn.
