After awhile 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 you head held high and eyes open, with the grace of an adult not the grief of a child.
And you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrows ground is too uncertain.
After awhile you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much of it, so plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone else to bring you flowers.
And you learn you really can endure...
that you really do have worth
that you really are strong.
And you learn with every goodbye.
So lock your hearts
And continue you journey for theirs many more years to come.
Love you both, don't let opportunities knock the door, open it up and discover your magical marriage journey.
