It Is Not Enough Poem by David Michael Jackson


It Is Enough
By David Michael Jackson

it is not enough to say that I miss you
it is not enough to say that the world didn”t line up with flowers when you died
nothing will ever be enough
nothing will ever be enough to say
to do
time will not help
it is enough
to say that time will not win
it will not win
it will not win
the moment will win
the meaningless passing moment
the single note of the violin
passing into the air
then gone
gone
gone
if that is the only victory there is
then that is
victory
my friend
my dear and sweet
and wonderful
friend
