How to say with words

How to say with words?

So many things I want to say
But I haven’t got the words
 I want to look into a rose
Make you feel the joy it stirred
So deep within this heart of mine
But how does one say this?
How can one show with merely symbols
And give to another bliss?

I want to tell how the full moon looks
In a morning touched by mist
This mystery, it touches me
My heart cannot resist
But go with the tranquility
But how to picture this
How does one write down these things?
How can one pass on, bliss?

They dance upon the soft morns breeze
Feathery branches off those trees
I look into the grace of this
And all the mystery
Does flow into the core of me
But how does one say this
No way can one, mere mortal man
Pass to others his own bliss

    I think that we, as writers and poets, can all relate to this. Sometimes, I know exactly what I want to say, yet I just cannot find the right words. It can be very frustrating to be a writer. You expressed your feelings so well here. Very nicely done, Peter!

    You just did pass your bliss as a mere mortal man. For I felt it through your poetry. A very well written poem Peter
