Day 11 - 'The Hardest Thing'


Today was a long one, and I was busy up to the end of the day.  That said, I remembered a line that I had thought of a while back, about a man who was lamenting over his inability to find a connection.  Here’s how it turned out.

This would be a legato ballad.  Smooth and melodic.



The hardest thing to find is someone special.
The toughest thing to see is who’ll be there.
Though people come and go each day,
Life makes it very tough to say
Which ones might be the perfect ones to care.

The hardest thing to find is something sacred.
The simplest thing to lose is something grand.
Just like a moment, here then gone,
Then sadly, we just carry on,
Not noticing the things you have in hand…

Our eyes are often sharp enough to catch the hidden keys,
And yet, they’re too acute to see the forest through the trees…

The truest thing to find is love unending.
The toughest thing to do is hold it fast…
You search until you find someone who gives you peace of mind,
Who smiles, and gives and works to make it last.

That one soul to share your life with,
Share your time, your heart, your pain and strife with…
Helping you to cope as times unwind.

Yes, true love…that’s the hardest thing to find.


Thanks for joining me for the day, and I'll see you tomorrow with my next SOTD!
