Travel – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)


i had never seen you cry before
it hurt me,
and somehow i felt unsure
is this real, as i begin to move closer
i want to travel
i want to unravel the mysteries
of the things
that i believe
i have never seen you so alone
and you were so alone then
i thought about a joke
then decided on a dream
and a can of coke
so we drink a bit
and i saw you cry
as you told me of the stresses
and all the reasons why
we will always be in touch
we are special friends
we will never leave each other
we may even travel a bit
but we will always be together
no matter what
or even what kind of weather

James Garratt – February to June 1995
