I Never Told You – Written January 2008 (Aged 32)

I Never Told You

i never told you
because it is not an answer
it is just my two left feet
trying to perform
i never told you
because i knew i could lose
with or without you
that is easy to choose
i never told you
because i did not want the confusion
i thrived on the friendship
and i was fed from my illusions
i never told you
because it made no sense
i never thought –
that i would make a difference
i wonder if you will be here
now i have the time
we have been here before
and this is the point that we return to
every few years
i never told you
but i need you here




James Garratt – January 2008
