Poem: Instead Of In My Arms

By Donovan Baldwin

Of course, if I could
I would choose to hold you
In my arms.

But, we are too far apart,
Not just in miles, but
In so many other ways.

We can never be together,

Each night I can hold you,
In my dreams.

Each day I can hold you,
In my heart.

Every day,
In almost every way,
I can hold you,
In dreams in my heart,
Instead of in my arms.

This is what I have,
This is what I regret,
This is what I will hold
Until I can hold nothing more.

Thank you, Amanda.
