You Will Take What I Can't Have - Poem by James McLain

I've been Alone to long with you, I've lied.
To love you I will love and live and die.
Those other times I take what you will give
and giving back you gave what I can't have.


I've placed my head upon your lap and slept,
and dreamt of places I have never been.
Above me all around me drifting falling snow,
those knowing of such peace they are to few.

I have never in this life been so alone,
and those who knew are gone to heaven now.
It's just my fear of never letting go and of
living with the dead I only wonder what the hide.
