Up and Down – Written Between Tuesday 15th February 1994 and October 1994 (Aged 18/19)

Up and Down

i will keep on writing
till i feel okay
and the world looks inviting
life with you is up and down
but it is always exciting
making it out at night
coming home late
in the morning
by the phone i sit and wait
i look all around
there is pain and sorrow
laughter and joy
all around people go up
and people go down
you were a poor artisan
you never quite finished my dreams
but it really does not matter
i still go on and on
the time i have is always here
it has not gone,
up and down

James Garratt – 1994
