Can't find the words

How can these feelings be described?
Where does one find such felicitous words …
How can I express myself sufficiently  
so my gratefulness to you is understood? 
How can I find the words to say?

Could I find such descriptive words to use
were I to ponder creation as I walk alone, 
contemplating life under crimson skies
as the sunlight lingers to welcome the stars 
and the beauty of nature caresses my mind?

If I listened carefully to the symphony of the frogs
singing their lullabyes in a nearby pond,
and in the distance, crickets chirping their goodnights …
As the evening sounds blend into melodious song 
would I hear the magical words I could write?

If I were to notice a quiet gentle breeze
blowing through my hair, caressing my skin,
And with every breath I take, feeling you near,
Wrapping me in your tender words of caring …
Could I write about you eloquently then? 

I could try to express how you’re like the sunshine
kissing me awake every morning at dawn …
And every night you’re like the moon
kissing me gently, wishing me sweet dreams 
and promising me you’ll watch over my sleep 

I could try to express how you saved my life
when you taught me to reach deep inside 
and express myself in the form of poetry …
No longer did I need to hide, you were with me.
Everything I’ve learned to love, you taught me

And even when I struggle to find the words
to express how much your friendship means to me,
You look beyond the surface, and see me inside.
You seem to know what I’m feeling anyway …
when I can’t find sufficient words to say.
