Enough for Me
We sit so quietly, listening without a sound
To words that no one speaks out loud
Silently, the world surrounds us silently
The stars above us brilliantly
Shining through a tapestry of shadows made by trees in the dark
And suddenly her words become so clear to me
She says change, it comes so quietly
It happens and only then do you realize you’re not the same.
For moments when nothing moves are moments when the greatest things occur
You go from thinking you know why to not being all that sure
And if all the shots made in the dark
Help you become who you are
Will you recall at all the person that you were before
When will it be enough?
Peacefully, I stand here waiting patiently,
The sun is rising joyfully,
And I feel night turn to day
Without the aid of sight
Gradually, the warmth comes back to me,
Lives are awakening, motioning,
So immediate and wild
Don't you wish that you were still a child,
And could hold wonder in your hands,
Live with earnest never worrying about the end
If it comes down to letting go,
Relinquish all the pain you know,
Scrape up all the trust you left back then,
Start again--how do you know you have enough?
Quietly, change, it comes so quietly
And suddenly, you're no longer who you were, but who you'll be
Inside of me, I look for her inside of me
For she is me, and she is everything that changes,
And all that stays the same.
Amazingly, the grays I saw so frequently, are gone
And now there are blues and greens
Stitched across the many things I do.
It's shimmering, splashed water-colored in the rain
She's crying for the world that's hers by name
The truth she always knew.
So I turn
Just as spring is now returning
And we will still remain
And that's enough, enough for me.
