Things Not Said

I often lament over things not said

even when many thoughts have reached my tongue.

Some had the lustre but courage unfed,

and some with a fine melody unsung.

Sometimes few words can bring a little smile.

At times their echoes stir up a yearning.

Often they utter for a sweet long while,

and hope to express a deeper meaning..

But my vocals sought no flattering tune

yet struck a few chords though silently played.

And the lyrics were haphazardly strewn,

but found those ears with a spiritual aid.

I lacked skill and fancy for eloquence.

All I could offer was my long presence.

    Excellent! A delightful poem about” competence and performance” in communication, and the emotional aspects linked to it.
