Words, (If I Were To Woo You, These Are The Words I Would Use) - Poem by Leslie Alexis
If I climbed to the topmost of the world
And leap to catch for you the fullest cloud,
Would you be my girl?
Say: and if I dove to the deepest sea
To harvest for you treasures of great beauty,
Would you be with me?
If I rode on a rocket, going very far,
To pocket for you the brightest star,
Amiga, quieres ser mi senorita?
What if I were to find the start of the Rainbow
And of its colors make for you a robe,
Would you go forth with me?
If I were to plant for you a garden,
Of all the flowers earthly, giving to you
A bouquet. Would I then be worthy?
What If I were to sneak from you a kiss,
Softly on your cheeks, so as to taste of
Heaven’s bliss. Would you share the joy?
And if I were just to hold your hand,
In my own way saving you from harm,
Would you find safety in me?
If I were to seek God, asking of his favor,
For someone to keep safe my heart.
Would you hold the key?
