I never called you enough
Never found enough time
For all the words I needed to give you
Or glean from you
To tuck into my pockets
And cherish later, when I was alone.
You gave me the glimpse of angels
Of God himself
Yet I have not filled myself enough with you
To cast away all doubt
With all my heart
What you know all too well.
Yet we are out of time
I am out of chances
To share my little self with you.
And though I do not doubt
The place your sweetness leads you to
The joy I feel for your sake
Is not enough to heal my heart
Torn open by the loss of you.
Time falls too fast
And you must leave the world behind
The same beautiful way you lived your life
And I must wait
Until I venture to the timeless lands myself
And you smile, and wave,
And sit down next to me.
Only then will I have enough
God bless you on your journey, dearest Joyce.
