Song lyrics and writing

If I could find the words then I would write it all down
If I could only find a voice I would speak
Oh it's there in my eyes so can't you see me tonight
C'mon and look at me and read 'em and weep

I was sitting in my office and listen to a song and a thought came to me and it is so true. For writers there are times that we cannot find the words to put down on paper. We can visualize what we are trying to say but the words just don't come. There are times when I am trying to write something that I wish someone could read my thoughts and help me with the words.

I was listening to “Read 'em and Weep” by Barry Manilow and that is when I did this thinking. I have said more than once that I can't find the words to say or write for what I am trying to communicate and it does get frustrating. Finding the right words isn't always the easiest to do, especially when you are trying to explain a feeling or situation.

One of the ways that I try and deal with this issue is to try and work around the situation and then sometimes the words do come to me. I know that I have an excellent listener in my business partner and husband and he can sometimes help me find the words that have gone missing.

Everyone has these times and we just need to deal with them and figure out another method of communicating what we are feeling. There are times when the words will never come and then there are times when after a while the right words will appear. Remember people can't read your thoughts and that is the worst part about not being able to get the words down.
