If Cannot Hold You

If I Cannot Hold You


If I cannot hold you in my arms

Feel the warmth of all your charm

Look into your eyes for at least a day

Knowing the role that we played


Spiritual re-union if you may

What price did we pay today?

Egos bought for another day.

Standing in adoration, people view

Know nothing of your real value


Love that began to show in you

Gently it touched your heart too

Furtively looking for only a few

Moments of love inside your arms


Love always looking for love in you

It was our souls that now will mourn

Emptiness that rises in the days apart

Cold lifelessness around the heart


Carl James
