Lucky is Enough

Sophie slips a letter through the ceiling vent heater,

And she never can remember to close with her name.

She looks down from a window up above the bold cathedral,

And a part of her is feeble and the rest of her is lame.

 

I’ll wish you luck if just lucky is enough,

But shouldn’t you be drinking from a stronger man’s cup?

Forever yours truly and with all of my love,

Just lock your doors.

 

She couldn’t wake the neighbors with the voice that they gave her,

She would want someone to save her but she’d never impose.

I must have seemed embarrassed when she startled my awareness,

From below her staring, careless as she put on her clothes.

 

I’ll wish you luck if just lucky is enough,

But shouldn’t you be drinking from a stronger man’s cup?

Forever yours truly and with all of my love,

Who are we fooling?

 

Sophie plays a game with paper scraps and bits of plastic,

And she swears she doesn’t practice, but she wins every time.

And I don’t know the object, and I think I’m just her project,

Because a part of me is suspect and the rest of me is lying.

 

I’ll wish you luck if just lucky is enough,

But shouldn’t you be drinking from a stronger man’s cup?

Forever yours truly and with all of my love,

They’re vicious when you’re weak, but they’re worse if you’re tough.

So give me your hand and let this be enough.

Ain’t we just lucky?
