As we sit in silence

I wonder if you care

There are times

I feel I am not enough

Not enough friend for you

Not enough woman for you

Not enough love for you

I feel that I am only

An adequate stand in

Holding this space open

Until you can find

Your real future

Your true love

Your soulmate

Until you find her

And start your life with her

I will wonder deep inside

Why I can’t be enough

Not enough now

Not enough later

Not enough ever
