The first time I saw you,
you knew me already,
A gift poised at my door, a precious friend to me
A sweet twinkle standing by me
Told me you were here to stay
But I couldn’t help but feel maybe

Love was not enough

Two adventurers with life before us
Even breakfast was a party
Our laughter drowned the market place
A well of joy, I drank,
You held me close and as we danced
I could feel only beat and breath, but I couldn’t shake the feeling

Love was not enough

When the thoughts are not the same, moment to moment
A mind’s a skimming stone, likes to flit lightly over water
Its the heart, a bedrock feels the moment,
spanning here to forever, but maybe just maybe, its,

Love is not enough

We held our hands
Walking down the river fed the ducks, fed each other’s
Eyes, a beauty like no other
Thought by one, known as truth by the other
Two heads on one shoulder
We drew our breath on the sand
Love crystalline sparkled in me
But you didn’t think you’d enough
You’d hate yourself for it and wondered maybe

Love was not enough

When thoughts are not the same, from time to time
and a mind’s not yours to hold Its the heart that holds it all
love and sadness, both its space and simply just simply

Love is not enough

We played one last time
The strings urge the waves to come forward
Drown the setting sun with the colours of the future
When the things I say cannot fix us
When the things you say cannot be unsaid
All you have is the ghost and the sad thing’s
When even that is gone
How do we tell each other

Love is not enough?
