Lost for words: WDYS 18th July

For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a person making some notes on a piece of paper, placed on top of some sheet music.

I cannot tell you how I feel.
Words are not enough, inadequate to portray.
Something unique, a gracious gift,
I know not what to do or say.
Music is my life and yet
Until you came it was an empty void:
Going through the motions of being,
I thought something I enjoyed.
Perhaps I should pen a love song,
My heart beating with every note
Building to a passion withheld
Transferred on paper as I wrote.
A melody of the simplest form,
Intertwined with blood and sweat
Crescendo cadences, lullaby soft,
Simple yes, but intricate.
My love knows no bounds,
It blossoms and spreads for all to hear,
I share it with the world, but you?
The one I hold most dear
Will never know how I feel.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
