If I tried
If I tried to explain it you just wouldn’t believe me:
It’s paradise, heavenly,
Too good to be true
If I tried to describe it my words could never tell:
The truth about beauty and nature,
The world on its own
If I tried to paint a picture no colour would do:
No brush could follow the line
Serenity forms before my eyes
If I tried to put it to music I’d rather become deaf:
Than attempt to mimic perfection;
An unthinkable, unjust task.
If I tried to write it in verse I would end up giving up:
Because this moment, this scene, this feeling
Is far beyond the life I know.
