Can God be giving, what I want once? Can she say, your heart is mine? “Mine she is”, prove you are divine. What I say, Can she comprehend? Collect her look, dazzle like in wine, Make close to me once, what I say, Over for Life, days, and me What I could, she will never see, What I am, Let me be, Make her once, Silence Free!
