how much oil does a lamp need
to burn itself out?

how many hours do we live?

how much rain can a field absorb
before it drowns all its seedlings?

how much light left to read?

how much wind is required
to fell sand castles?

how much water in a wave?

how many thrusts can a spirit withstand
before it deflates and withers?

how much love can a heart hold?

just so much,
so many
