that will be enough

if all i do is sit here today with you
that is enough

if all i do is inhale the soft smell of you
that is enough

if all i do is let your wrinkly fingers
work to wrap themselves around my thumb
that is enough

if all i do is study the blue in your eyes
and let you study the green in mine
that is enough

if all i do is whisper to you
and listen as you purr back to me
that is enough

if all i do is rest my lips
on the top of your tiny forehead
that is enough

if all i do is marvel in the miracle
of you in my arms
that is enough

if all i do is wonder
how i once lived in a world without you
that is enough

if all i do is hover by your heart
thanking god with every beat
that is enough

and soon when i rejoin the land of schedules
and needing to be here and there
i will remind myself of this precious time we had
and all the beautiful, important things we did together

and i will know
that if all i do the rest of my life
is love you and teach you and watch you grow

that will be enough
