Not Enough

It is so I'm not rich with no money to burn
It is true I have no assets or profits to turn

It is only all of me I have to offer and give 
It is with this though you could not live

It is then I was told that it is not enough
It is what made wanting to go on pretty tough

It is in those words causing such hauntings untold
It is not enough shattered my heart and crushed my soul

It is not enough to hear what you had to say
It is even worse letting you go as you walk away

It is still in the shattered pieces of my heart you know
It is there my love for you that will truly never let go

    Scarlett, some lovers are so fickle. Their affections stop on a dime. If someone doesn't feel having you is "enough," they don't deserve you. I can relate to the power in your words and hope you are not going through this pain right now. Love, Carolyn
