Ebb – Written Saturday 15th March 2004 (Aged 29)


these last few months
have been breathtaking
and heartbreaking
there is so much
in the environment –
which seems to be taking
and i am only here
hoping and waiting
stem the steady tears
stem the hearty fears
these last few months
in which i have searched –
perhaps for a better me
and i am so tentatively perched
clasping my identity
because that is what became lost
and that is why it means everything to me
these last few months
i have watched the tide
ebb at our tired toes
all the love that comes
and all the love that goes

James Garratt – Saturday 15th March 2004
