Sunsets All Round – Written April 1999 (Aged 24)

Sunsets All Round

i have been away
now it is the end of the day
and now,
it is sunsets all round
and here we go,
round and round
i have got you a present
a true and a well meant feeling
but how do i show you
when i cannot unwrap it
what can i do
when none of us fit
i have been astray
and i know,
every dog eventually has its day
so it is,
sunsets for me and you
it has come to an end with a limp smile
a smile that offers little comfort
not even for a while

James Garratt – April 1999
