On Saying Goodbye

My cousin Nikay got this from somewhere. It's a beautiful piece about saying goodbye. Here goes ...
"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 heart held high and your eyes open. With the grace of an adult, 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 in mid-flight. After a while, you learn that sunshine burns if you get too much. So you plant your own garden and decorate your soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. And you learn that you really can endure, that you really have worth ... and you learn and learn ... with every "goodbye" you learn."
