I have learned much in the school
of life, did the assignments,
passed a few, failed at others,
kept notes only to toss them out
later... I followed good examples but
forged my own way when necessary,
saw change as a challenge, and thought
I did it all quite well until unexpected
loss taught me its own difficult
lessons... I learned filled rooms did
not really mean you were not alone, tasting
rain was not nearly so sweet unless
someone was watching, skies blushing
at sunset were more exquisite when
love stood beside you, breathing
deeply of each day was much harder
than I could ever imagine, and
memories did not wait for an invitation
to visit, but what surprised me most were
the sounds of change...
I've learned that sometimes... it is simply silence.
