FEELINGS Why is it that feelings that are deepest Are the hardest to convey? When a dear friend passes on We rarely know what to say. We mumble and we mutter And give out heartfelt hugs To the mother and the father And the family that shrugs. Though deepest love is in our being And sorrow deeply felt We ne'er know what to say That's truly, fully meant. Why can't we say out loud What's really in our heart And pass along those words Before the grave we must depart? c ELR 2013

    I think it's the hardest because it comes from the soul. It's like a vow. Your heart feels it. But, it has to come from within. It has to be meant. Cherished. And, most importantly, honest. Because why rush something so deep. It is a splendid wonder though. We want what is said from deep within to matter, which should take time. Yet, tomorrow isn't guaranteed. Just another of life's ironies. Great writing.

    Superbly said, Drake. You mirror my thoughts. As you say, what words are expressed must be true and honest. Many thanks.
