Bridge Over Troubled Estuary Waters – Written Tuesday 14th December 2009 (Aged 34)

Bridge Over Troubled Estuary Waters

she said,
i am the caged bird that cannot sing
with a bridge over troubled Estuary waters
what delights could she bring?

she is the girl
that the parents could not let go of
she writes novels in her heart
stories of the greatest lost loves.

she said,
i have reached the age of thirty one
and life is the strangest mill
but to get those things done
first she has to climb the greatest hill.

she is,
the beautiful caged bird that longs to sing
with a bridge over troubled Estuary waters
do any of us know where to begin?

she is the girl
that is the rarest to find
first she must learn to find her wings and fly
because she fears being left behind




James Garratt – Tuesday 14th December 2009
