If only love was enough

To bring your smile back

Those jokes, that laugh,

Your ever quick wit.

Your love, your care, your warmth,

Hugs and support and teasing.

 

If only love was enough

To keep you with us

To protect you from all harm.

If only a hug was enough to keep you safe

If only concern was a cure.

 

If love was enough this pain in our hearts

Would never have begun.

If love was enough our tears would finally dry.

 

Love wasn't enough

but you were.

 

Enough to make the pain of losing you worthwhile.
