Comes the dawn poem
You learn poem
Dayna (z”l), my younger sister, was a poet who wrote beautiful words and a thinker who felt deeply. She wrote many essays, poems, notes, and thoughts during the 35 years she was with us on this planet. She enjoyed buying cards for friends with positive messages and clipping quotes and writings from others that spoke to her heart.
I was going through some memory boxes during our recent transfer. I found this poem she had saved in between tears, and it obviously meant a lot to her. It speaks to the same themes of compassion, empathy, and self-worth that I discussed in my most recent blog post.
Thanks to the original source for these titles, which have such a strong poetic expression. They take the reader on an inner reflection journey, reminding us of our own inner power, resiliency, and self-worth, a subject I recently discussed in this essay: Self-Worth, Denial, and Compassion
The poem is also a passionate reminder of the priceless gift of each day for me, and it inspires us to transfer our future thoughts to the present with appreciation, while appreciating the lessons of our pasts. All of this is something I know to be real.
After a while, you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul, and that love isn’t synonymous with ownership, and that company isn’t synonymous with protection.

And you start to realize that kisses aren’t contracts, and gifts aren’t promises, and you start to embrace your losses with the grace of an adult, rather than the grief of a child.
After a while poem meaning
And you learn to develop your roads today because the ground of tomorrow is too unpredictable for plans, and futures have a habit of collapsing in mid-flight.

I’d like to share a profoundly inspirational poem in this week’s Success Newsletter that has helped many people accept and endure life’s struggles, as well as find harmony, courage, and a renewed outlook on life.
Many years later, Veronica A. Shoffstall wrote to Ann Landers’ “Ask Ann Landers” column, claiming to be the author and that she wrote it when she was 19 years old, in 1971. Another woman, Judith B. Evans, claimed to be the poem’s “authentic poet” in 2004. Another woman, Veronica Rodriguez, claimed to be the true author of “Comes The Dawn” in 2015.
In reality, the poem “Comes The Dawn,” also known as “You Learn” and “After A While,” is one half of the longer poem “Aprendiendo,” which was written in Spanish and attributed to Argentinian poet, writer, and essayist Jorge Luis Borges (24 August 1899 – 14 June 1986).
It was written and published in the 1940s, and it was probably translated by an American translator who worked with Borges from 1967 to 1972. Borges started giving frequent lectures at American colleges around the same time, which may explain how the poem came to be known in the United States. It should also be noted that the poem was cited as anonymous in Barrie Sanford Greif’s Spanish book “Para Que Nunca Lo Olviden” (paperback – December 29, 1999), and it has also been credited to Yamira Hernandez of Colombia, despite the fact that it does not fit Borges’ style. As a result, there is no definitive proof as to who wrote the poem “You Learn/After A While/Comes The Dawn!”

“I want to have a student read this poem to the class next week, and I believe you are the only one who can read poetry correctly, but it’s really powerful, and I wanted to give you time to read it first, so you could get used to it,” he said, pulling me aside.
Not with the sorrow of a boy, but with the grace of a woman You learn to base your expectations on the present. Since the future has a habit of collapsing in the middle of a flight, and tomorrow’s ground can be too unpredictable for plans, Nonetheless, each step in a new direction leads to the hope of a brighter dawn. You discover that even too much sunlight can cause burns. Instead of waiting for others to bring you flowers, you cultivate your own garden and nourish your own soul. You discover that true love is full of joys and sorrows. While it seems to be present at all times, it is never exactly the same. Developing into both more and less than passion It’s extremely difficult to describe And you discover that you will really persevere as a result of it all. That you are truly strong, and that you are valuable. With each goodbye, you learn and develop. I can’t tell you how much it meant to me to be given the opportunity to read it privately first. I was 16 years old and had just broken up with my first boyfriend… yeah, you know. As the full truth of this poem hit home, warm tears poured down my face. (I know, I’m starting to see a pattern here… what can I say, I’m a real cry baby)
