Poem: It Would Never Be Enough

It Would Never Be Enoughturbulence
By Cassie Newell

It would never be enough
to only call you my friend

It would never be enough
to walk hand in hand

It would never be enough
to slip on a wedding band

It would never be enough
to start and raise a family

It would never be enough
to dance, to sing, to laugh with you

It would never be enough
to have a few years left

It would never be enough
to say goodbye in a short breath

It would never be enough

  1. Beautiful. It brought tears to my eyes. I love the use of repetition to add tension and flavour in poetry and you used it really well here. It packed an emotional punch. Thanks so much for the contribution.
