One Day He Will Be Gone (Originally Untitled) – Written January 2013 (Aged 37)

One Day He Will Be Gone

he is dad
maybe just in name
but… dad, all the same
father,
if that is prefered
if it suits
you can change some things
but not the path of your boots
not your maps
or your roots

he is here
and he is alive
and no matter what is felt inside
it is better to talk now
than simple hide
i had to face this
i had to turn
i had to be humbled
before i could learn
speak to him now,
because one day, he will be gone




James Garratt – January 2013
