Muses’ fling

Muses’ fling

I have always been
the Muses’ fling
Passionate,
beguiled
by beauty—
ever fleeting

I find myself relieved
when I am reunited
with Creativity—
even when
I am reminded:
I have always been
and will always be
the Muses’ fling

Never Enough

Never Enough

I want all the best for you
Would give all I have to you
But, it never seems to be enough

When I think of all I’ve tried to do
Dressed you up, gave so much to you:
Money
Time
Pleasures
Treasures
They were never enough

At times, you wanted more than I had
A piggy bank with an endless tank
With tired eyes I tried to say,
“It will never be enough”

I watched you walk away today
I thought of all I want for you
And how much I do love you
Still giving what I can to you,
I just hope, someday, that you might say,
“It was always enough”
