Come Back Another Day – Written Sunday 18th April 2021 (Aged 46)

Come Back Another Day

moments of love
aboard the ship
times of hope
sailing with gifts
i see shadows
they knock on doors
and ask,
would you like –
to come out and play
i close the door
mum says come back –
another day
when the ship has set sail
and the docks no more,
accept mighty ships
we set sail
and sail upon waters past
my parents have died
time travels fast

James Garratt – Sunday 18th April 2021
