living possessions

It's not that I miss you 
 You've been gone too long 
Not that I'm still mourning 
 Though tears are still strong 
Not that I stopped loving you 
 My love it stays the same 
Not that I'm lonely 
 My comfort is your name 

But if I could see you 
 My eyes would be whole 
If I could hear you 
 To your voice my ears would belong 
If I could reach you 
 With a satisfied touch 
If my giving could greet you 
 And tell of my feelings so much 

Sometimes I drift 
 In my immaginary land 
Sitting beside you 
 Holding your hand 
Singing a melody 
 And being your man 
Give you things that are lock up 
 that only the living can have
