Try To Tell (poem)

Updated on August 10, 2016

Try to tell sunshine the reason of day

Try to tell flowers why beauty astounds

Try to tell music which sets hearts astray

Whisper to wishes of dreams out of bounds


Sing to the spring of stars in lovers’ eyes

The memories awaiting for kisses to share

Try to tell longing of long lasting sighs

The scent of pure Joy which floats in the air


This wonder of youth which never grows old

In search of a truth which words cannot find

A vane touch for sooth makes wisdom unfold

Try to tell my soul to this I’m resigned


I’m lost in a world of what can I do

Try to tell always my sunshine is you

      Oh, this is so very lovely, Mh. I love the sunshine reference. Reminds me of that song, "You Are My Sunshine." But I also love Stevie Wonders' song too!

      Enjoyed this one very much.

      Voted up +++ and sharing

      God bless, Faith Reaper
