Packing Up Memories

only ever tried to encourage you
to be yourself
not gain these possessions
and compete with everybody else
only ever wanted you
to believe in yourself
not spend a lifetime
in awe of everybody else
but you would not listen;
to the words I used to say
and where once dew so easily glistened
suddenly we turn to face a sky of grey
we pack up our memories
at the end of our days



James Garratt – Sunday 2nd March 2008
