Meadow Skies and Lullabies – Written October 2000 (Aged 25)

Meadow Skies and Lullabies

i would like things to be easier
meadow skies and lullabies
princess charming
and luck in an extra large size
flowers with petals
something soft instead of this cold metal

meadow skies and lullabies
could rock me to sleep
i am tired of this world
there seems to be an army of sheep
but you never hear them bleat
i would like things to move forwards
because i am becoming increasingly bored

meadow skies and lullabies
ice cream and lemonade
could be the only things to save
days out at museums
a shame my childhood was never porcelain
meadow skies and lullabies
be a stronger person now
a toucher of skies
a friend and a tracer of the shy

James Garratt – October 2000
