If You Can – Written Wednesday 13th December 2000 (Aged 25)

If You Can

touch the sky
if you can
touch me,
if you can
words or pictures
it makes no difference
my motives are plane
my self pity
is influenced by its own fame
touch the person next to you
the person on your train
find the person inside
then deal with your pain
let it lie
touch the sky
just once,
before we all die
touch me,
do not leave me to cry
do not leave it all inside

James Garratt – Wednesday 12th December 2000
