Love We

They always say – love is never enough in any relationship.

Heh. Who are ‘they’ and what do ‘they’ know?

**********************************************************

We love each other. And that’s enough for today.

Maybe tomorrow, it’ll be your smile. Or maybe your call to say hi,

But we love each other. And that’s enough for today.

Maybe it’ll be my pen and the lives that I script

But we love each other. And that’s enough for today.

Pierce Brosnan said; “the world is not enough”

Who needs the world when I got your smile’

My love?

My all, the one who makes me breath

Who puts those ‘one-kind’ smiles on my face,

And makes me feel silly

The one who makes me so strong I’m weak

We love each other. And that’s enough for today.

Tomorrow never comes; time will keep going on,

I guess that means all we have is today, my all

Probably annoy you tomorrow with something I’ll say

We love each other. And that’s enough for today.

Installed utorrent on my system; to download a world of movies,

And then soon uninstalled it

Sure I love movies – but this is real

The kind of reality I’d rather watch – like a movie

The world is not enough; everybody wants more,

The whole world is there in your smile – and that’s enough

Sure I’ll be upset next week, and not eat your food

We do love each other. And that’s enough for today.

      • Bhet it made you smile – and it will through the day.

        Not for what was lost – but what is found.

        Thank you again!

  2. Today is all we’ve got. If only we realised this, half the world’s problems are solved.

  4. … and if today is gone
    then your love is all I’ve got
    strong enough to hold unto

  5. awww….that refrain “We love each other. And that’s enough for today” is the heart of the poem and just when the other words are making us to forget what the poem is all about, it comes up again and reminds us, it is all about today and what we have. let us not spoil today by the worries (I love the Yoruba better ‘Aniyan ola’) of tomorrow, or the fears of tomorrow. tomorrow will surely take care of itself. let us live in the now, appreciate what we have, invest in it and nurture it…because “Tomorrow never comes; time will keep going on”

    this is a masterpiece! you rock!
