Hold Onto Dreams – Written October 1999 (Aged 24)

Hold Onto Dreams

a crazy world –
cradles me in my bed
hold onto dreams
hold onto the words we said
a cold caught me
but it went like the sea
you are the only thing i want
hold me, till the pain disappears
till the sun dries all the tears
you have to keep going
you are here now
am i here now?
let’s dream and then touch
to leave now,
that would be too much
i went down to the water
but i did not drown
i caught my reflection
and then i heard,
a very distant sound
of a new and exciting situation

James Garratt – October 1999
