If I could hold you – by James
I know it’s wrong I know you’re gone, but
for you in my arms, one last song.
My mind is full of your smiling face,
my hands tremble, I cannot brace.
When I sit with boy boy for his morning milk,
my love for you pulses, sharp like silk.
I shed a tear with him because he knows,
he pats my head he remembers our rose.
The pain I know will go in time,
but oh I miss you, face sublime.
The void in me a massive gape,
I know in time I will escape.
My dear sweet mom is there with you,
her humour and cuddles see me through.
Lord I pray your love will embrace,
our dear dear child safe in your holy place.
The road to walk to claim you back,
but only in memory, a brightening fact.
The journey is long, the battle blue,
there is solace in thought, because god holds you.
