Love Is Not Enough

You live far away, in a distant land,
while i continue to struggle with your memories in my mind,
though bound by duty, i am consumed by love,
i begin to realize that it won’t be easy now.
sometimes… love is just not enough.

In every instant of my life that i try and distract,
your vision radiates warmly through all of my act,
as i try and nudge you away, so that i can focus,
you remain ever so gently, like a full blossomed lotus.
sometimes… love is just not enough.

Even as i sleep, you haunt me in my dream,
i wake up with strange feelings, that make me want to scream,
must life be so unfair, i patiently start to reflect,
i find that there is no answer, that will ever be perfect.
sometimes… love is just not enough.

As we now try to focus, on our separate lives,
i see that we cannot avoid a bunch of ugly lies,
wish i could cast these away, to just be with you,
but duty reminds me that this is something i can’t yet do.
sometimes… love is just not enough.

Frustrations abound, i surrender to time,
hoping it will bring us together, when we are still in our prime,
till then we can hang on to memories that we cherish,
being sure that our feelings for each other will never perish.
sometimes…sometimes… love is just enough.
