You are the fool who loved me too much
But I am the fool who loved you back.

And maybe that could have been enough
But the world is not kind to fools in love

So sweet
That we would even hope
Or try despite the odds

And yet
There is but a few tricks
To live beyond our time

Trees and stories and family
A look
And a smile
And a kiss
And a love

Ah, but that look
To ensnare even the strongest of beasts
How sharp its teeth
Yet thin its skin

But we love
And we try
Or cease to be

Is that not enough for fools in love?
