only then will you understand

Only during the storm your learn who is the firm land.

Only during sickness you learn who honestly made that vow.

Only when you’re ugly you learn which hug is sincere.

Only when you are poor those humble dinners become priceless.

Only when you are about to die you will learn to appreciate life.

I like this a lot. It’s best if we learn to appreciate what we have before we lose it. Great job.

Only when you have lost your vision you will learn how precious to read a poem like this.
