Semi-Special – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)


not especially great
give me some time
i will wait
semi-special, in stone, in bronze
i will anticipate
hoping that it’s all great
just thinking of what to do
there are so many people
and i am involved with you
how is a boy meant to live
what is he supposed to do
when he has given everything he has to give
and i gave it all to you

James Garratt – February to June 1995
