I Wish You Enough (I Wish You Enough Poem)

At an airport I overheard a father and daughter in their last moments together.

They had announced her plane’s departure and standing near the door, he said to his daughter, “I love you, I wish you enough.”
She said, “Daddy, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed.

I wish you enough, too, Daddy.”
They kissed goodbye and she left.

He walked over toward the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see he wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on his privacy, but he welcomed me in by asking, “Did you ever say goodbye to someone knowing it would be forever?” ”
“Yes, I have,” I replied.

Saying that brought back memories I had of expressing my love and appreciation for all my Dad had done for me. Recognizing that his days were limited, I took the time to tell him face to face how much he meant to me. So I knew what this man was experiencing.
“Forgive me for asking, but why is this forever goodbye?” I asked.

“I am old and she lives much too far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is, her next trip back will be for my funeral,” he said.
“When you were saying good-bye I heard you say, ‘I wish you enough.’ May I ask what that means?” He began to smile.
“That’s a wish that has been handed down from other generations.

My parents used to say it to everyone.”
He paused for a moment and looking up as if trying to remember it in detail, he smiled even more.
“When we said ‘I wish you enough,’ we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with enough good things to sustain them,” he continued and then turning toward me he shared the following as if he were reciting it from memory.

“I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough “Hello’s” to get you through the final “Good-bye.”

The Meaning of Love (I Wish You Enough Poem)

To love is to share life together,
to build special plans just for two,
to work side by side,
and then smile with pride,
as one by one, dreams all come true.

To love is to help and encourage
with smiles and sincere words of praise,
to take time to share,
to listen and care
in tender, affectionate ways.

To love is to have someone special,
one on whom you can always depend
to be there through the years,
sharing laughter and tears,
as a partner, a lover, a friend.

To love is to make special memories
of moments you love to recall,
of all the good things
that sharing life brings.
Love is the greatest of all.

I’ve learned the full meaning
of sharing and caring
and having my dreams all come true;
I’ve learned the full meaning
of being in love
by being and loving with you.

Would it Be ok? (I Wish You Enough Poem)

Would it be ok if I took some of your time?
Would it be ok if I wrote you a rhyme?
Would it be ok if I opened my heart?
Would it be ok if I took on the part

Of being your man and showed you a view,
One that only a real man could do?
Would it be ok if I could make you smile?
Would it be ok if I held you awhile?

Would it be ok if I kissed your face?
Would it be ok if I were to replace
All the men in your past that just wouldn’t do
And vow to be faithful and always be true?

Would it be alright to look in your eyes?
Would it be alright to never tell lies?
Would it be alright to find a way?
Would it be alright to long for the day

To pull you close and whisper in your ear
And tell you our feelings are nothing to fear?
Would it be ok if I took some of your time?
Would it be ok if I wrote you a rhyme?
To tell you there’s nothing I’d rather do
Than spend my whole life loving only you…

For the Ones You Love

In The Orchard (I Wish You Enough Poem)

“I thought you loved me.”

“No, it was only fun.”

“When we stood there, closer than all?” “Well, the harvest moon

“Was shining and queer in your hair, and it turned my head.”

“That made you?” “Yes.” “Just the moon and the light it made

“Under the tree?” “Well, your mouth, too.” “Yes, my mouth?”

“And the quiet there that sang like the drum in the booth.

“You shouldn’t have danced like that.” “Like what?” “So close,

“With your head turned up, and the flower in your hair, a rose

“That smelt all warm.” “I loved you. I thought you knew

“I wouldn’t have danced like that with any but you.”

“I didn’t know. I thought you knew it was fun.”

“I thought it was love you meant.” “Well, it’s done.” “Yes, it’s done.

“I’ve seen boys stone a blackbird, and watched them drown

“A kitten … it clawed at the reeds, and they pushed it down

“Into the pool while it screamed. Is that fun, too?”

“Well, boys are like that … Your brothers…” “Yes, I know.

“But you, so lovely and strong! Not you! Not you!”

“They don’t understand it’s cruel. It’s only a game.”

“And are girls fun, too?” “No, still in a way it’s the same.

“It’s queer and lovely to have a girl…” “Go on.”

“It makes you mad for a bit to feel she’s your own,

“And you laugh and kiss her, and maybe you give her a ring,

“But it’s only in fun.” “But I gave you everything.”

“Well, you shouldn’t have done it. You know what a fellow thinks

“When a girl does that.” “Yes, he talks of her over his drinks

“And calls her a—” “Stop that now. I thought you knew.”

“But it wasn’t with anyone else. It was only you.”

“How did I know? I thought you wanted it too.

“I thought you were like the rest. Well, what’s to be done?”

“To be done?” “Is it all right?” “Yes.” “Sure?” “Yes, but why?”

“I don’t know. I thought you were going to cry.

“You said you had something to tell me.” “Yes, I know.

“It wasn’t anything really … I think I’ll go.”

“Yes, it’s late. There’s thunder about, a drop of rain

“Fell on my hand in the dark. I’ll see you again

“At the dance next week. You’re sure that everything’s right?”

“Yes.” “Well, I’ll be going.” “Kiss me…” “Good night.” …

“Good night.”
