Is Love Enough?

By Shea Ryhai © 2009


If perfection

was a mission.

I would fail

with no hope to prevail.


And if beauty

was a duty.

I would cry

as I give another try.


But if Love

could be enough.

That I could do

I'd give my love to you.


But I can't please you if you want me to be,

someone else who was never me.

I can't change why is it so hard to see,

I love you, but did you ever love me?


If regret

we could forget.

Then for a while

I might find a way to smile.


If joy and pain

all felt the same.

Then I might find

the good in being left behind.


But why is Love

never good enough?

Is it hard to try

instead of leaving with no goodbye.
