I wanted to write a poem to tell you how I feel and though I searched deep within myself I could not find the words. I wanted to tell you that something within me has changed and that now I feel everything so deeply.
How I have been mourning the days that have passed me by. Times when I have let opportunities go, lost forever, and times when I have chased after dreams only to fall like a fool.
The places to which I wanted to travel, to experience, the lavender in Provence, the meadows and music of the French countryside, the flowers in Tuscany, so many places, so many dreams, places you have seen ... but time did not wait for me, or stand still and now it is too late ... regrets, how do I explain?
These emotions that I cannot put into words, or a rhyme, they are feelings deep within me, you may not understand.
They are feelings that I cannot express with words, like the notes of a song ... how do I explain how they touch my heart, a note resonating on the string of a cello, a fleeting melody that moves me to tears or a feeling of happiness?
The scent of flowers in a night garden carried on the warm evening air, a feeling, an emotion, when I think of you... the sound of laughter and music carried across the water on a Summer's night, reflected lights on the surface. Soft moonlight, paper lanterns hanging in trees, holiday dreams, feelings ... no words.
How does one explain loneliness and happiness, I only know when I feel them, or love, how can that feeling be put into words? If there is a way then perhaps I have lost my direction, I can only feel them, not explain.
How do I explain the feelings of beauty when I read your words to me; the warm colour and emotions that enfold me, there are no words for such a beautiful feeling ... or the love that I feel for you ... it cannot be explained, it cannot be defined ... it just is ...
