If Wishing Made It So - Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

if wishing made it so
we'd be lovers you and i
but i have my husband still
and you your lovely wife


so instead we go our
separate ways disturbed
by unfullfilled desire
with no way to
extinguish the fire

    Whew! ! ! !
    what a terrible situation to be in....
    The song says, it is sad to belong to someone else when the right one comes along-if it is the right one. Sometimes we are attracted to others-but marriage thnik of you have-
    I can't say that I don't know what you are feeling......whew! !
