Poem “Comes the Dawn”

“And you learn to build all your roads

On today because tomorrow’s ground

Is too uncertain. And futures have

A way of falling down in midflight.

And you learn that you really can endure . . .

That you really are strong

And you really do have worth

And you learn and learn . . .

With every good-bye you learn.”

“Comes the Dawn,” an anonymous poem cited in Maureen Burns, Forgiveness: A Gift You Give Yourself (Greenville, Mich.: Empey Enterprises, 1992), 117.”
