Alas, If Only I Can

You are the sweetest woman
You are the most handsome man
I would give you the warmest embrace
Alas, if only I can
I would add you to my coffee
Or even take you by the hand
I would dance with you all night
Alas, if only I can 
I would introduce you to all my friends
Or even invite you out with the clan
I would share my ice cream cone with you
Alas, if only I can
I would take you to the mosque
Whenever we hear the azan
I would watch Forrest Gump with you
Alas, if only I can
I would jot you down on paper
Observing all the emotions you fan
Then turn you into a lyric poem
Now that my friend I can

    nice ending, with the thought, you can not stop my desires. The strong feelings of emotion alert you to do and think in the most positive ways. Enjoyed,..Sidney LeeAnn

    I sense a hint of sadness maybe? Alas = regretfully, indeed you may turn this into a lyric poem, yet can you turn your heart into what you only want? never doubted the beauty you had. Love, Sami.
