I Guess My 'So Much' Just Has To Do


I love you so much.
'How much is that? '

I don't know.
When is the giving of it,
Too much?
How would anyone know,
When the giving of love...
Has them fulfilled?

'I can never get enough.'
And I can not say to you,
When enough has become too much.
So,
I guess my 'so much' love to you I give...
Just has to do!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
