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 you mean 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
