“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.”
