You Learn

“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, 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 a while you learn…
That even sunshine burns if you get too much.

So you plant your garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.”

Jorge Luis BorgesYou Learn

  1. Så sant och vackert!
    Men "And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight." - Ja det hoppas jag då verkligen inte kl 07:00 på söndag;-)

  2. Vackert och riktigt bra!
