Lover Boy

I don’t think love is enough.

That’s probably why we say things like “IF love were enough…”

Because… if love WERE enough,

I think it would’ve mattered at the end.

Reality would’ve reflected every single glass of pinot noir I downed.

If love were enough,

I wouldn’t have to live off of borrowed time…

Wouldn’t have to hang unto words they’ve said.

If love were enough

Then I wouldn’t be here talking about ifs.


To be loved by you is some kind of wonderful.

And even if it’s not enough to last a lifetime.

It’s enough for now.
