Strong – Written Thursday 21st October 1999 (Aged 24)


feel so strong
like the changes
are so very strong
stronger than they have ever been
stronger than the currents
that almost rips me from life’s seams
the seams that hold me together
feel so strong
in this changeable weather
like the changes
are almost going to overwhelm me
but still, my soul is there
if it comes to it
it will always be us
you have everything of me
all i can hope for is your ongoing love
and with that beautiful trust
and i need it too
i will always hold you
feel so strong
please do not let this feeling be gone

James Garratt – Thursday 21st October 1999
