The Journey – Written Monday 4th January 1993 (Aged 17)

The Journey

girl i dream of that journey
of discovery and the feelings you have shown me
girl i dream of your face in amongst the crowd
unbeknown to me but so obvious, so loud
i can see it now in my mind, your hand stretching out
we whisper each others names in a baited breath
bathing in the excitement of it all
i can feel your arms around me
together we protect like a solid wall
together we are locked into my reality
the moment breaks all the rules of time
but in reality, a couple of moments is all i find

James Garratt – Monday 4th January 1993
