I Wish I Could Express To You
My eyes bear not the magnitude of awe I hold for you...
My lips fail miserably at delivering the abundance of praise you deserve...
My heart possesses not, the panoptic expanse it should, to carry enough love for you...
My vocabulary is so constricted, so limited
How I wish I could lavish you with words that could encompass your beauty
How I wish you could be me for a moment in time
to witness through my eyes what a treasure you are...
Poetry is composed with such soulful whorls of emotion
Yet, I swear – no poem, no lyric, no verse – could describe you my friend.
Art portrays such deep meaning
Yet, no artist could paint a picture that does your character justice.
Music can delve into a persons soul
Yet, no musician could produce the melody I sing when I hear your name.
Languages...such profundity each enriching word contains
Yet, no matter what translation, 'Thank you for being my friend', never seems good enough.
I will never be able to explain what your friendship is to me
But I will never stop trying...
