Forever Thirty Six – Written February 2013 (Aged 37)

Forever Thirty Six

approaching birthday
the second one without them
fear getting older
and looking different
as if they will come back
and not recognise me
fear leaving them behind
as if there is a choice
for them,
forever thirty six
for them,
time no longer ticks
approaching birthday
the second one without them




James Garratt – February 2013
