Could Not Let Go – Written Friday 2nd June 2000 (Aged 25)

Could Not Let Go

could not let go
just had to hold on
stolen moments
of a stolen touch
golden moments
but is gold enough?
could not let go
too much sun
and don’t you know
too much fun
had to wonder aloud
had to hold on
just another face –
in the crowd
could not let go
feeling closer still
what will ever know
what is their to lose
as we grow
we can only choose

James Garratt – Friday 2nd June 2000
