Love is enough

😊 have u ever liked someone so much that ur heart feels fizzy and ur stomach hurts and u just want to give them flowers and kiss their freckles and wrists and fill their emptiness with light and love? have u ever found the entire universe in just one person? have u ever looked at someone’s eyes and seen the moon? the sun? have u realized that love has filled ur life with light and kept u safe even when the world is cruel and tired and unpredictable? have u ever realized that love is enough to heal any wound? have u ever realized..that love is enough.                      Love is enough. Let us not ask for gold.
  Wealth breeds false aims, and pride and selfishness;
In those serene, Arcadian days of old
  Men gave no thought to princely homes and dress.
The gods who dwelt on fair Olympia's height
Lived only for dear love and love's delight.
                    Love is enough.

Love is enough. Why should we care for fame?
  Ambition is a most unpleasant guest:
It lures us with the glory of a name
  Far from the happy haunts of peace and rest.
Let us stay here in this secluded place
Made beautiful by love's endearing grace!
                    Love is enough.

Love is enough. Why should we strive for power?
  It brings men only envy and distrust.
The poor world's homage pleases but an hour,
  And earthly honours vanish in the dust.
The grandest lives are ofttimes desolate;
Let me be loved, and let who will be great.
                    Love is enough.

Love is enough. Why should we ask for more?
  What greater gift have gods vouchsafed to men?
What better boon of all their precious store
  Than our fond hearts that love and love again?
Old love may die; new love is just as sweet;
And life is fair and all the world complete:
                    Love is enough!
