Enough

For you who, after all these years, finally learned to be content

 

Enough

Just a kiss to say good night is enough for me.

It lingers far longer than it should,

Spreading warmth all over my body

Making it so I lie in bed with thoughts of you

And eventually fall to the embrace of sleep

With dreams of you

 

Just a quick hug of comfort is enough for me.

It shows how much you care and worry,

Wanting to rid me of my fears and doubts

Making it so my mind is set at ease

Despite the thundering heartbeat, the speechlessness

And dreams of you.

 

Just a phone call when you’re away is enough for me.

It shortens the distance between us,

Sending the sound of your voice for me to hear,

Making it so you don’t seem oceans away

Even though you leave me with just five words

And dreams of you.

 

Just a ‘Hello’ as a greeting is enough for me.

It tells me that you still recognize me,

Meeting ‘by coincidence’ along the busy sidewalk,

Making it so I can at least have a reason

To smile, to say a greeting back and

To dream of you.

 

Just a quick glimpse of you is enough for me.

It reminds me that you are real,

Existing in a world that is not my imagination,

Making it so my reality is still held in place

Though I can now only dare approach

In dreams of you.

 

Just a thought from you is enough for me.

It serves as the proof that you remember me,

Drifting every now and then in your mind

Making it so I know that we did matter

Though I only see the face I want to see

In dreams of you.
