Still Looking – Written Sunday 23rd May 1999 (Aged 24)

Still Looking

still looking
still have not found it
i will tell you when i have
only then will know
preoccupied with growing old

sill looking,
sill hoping,
still moving,
almost a contradiction
almost found it
memories always decorate the past
and make it,
feel much better than it was
they give it brighter colour

sill hoping,
still looking,
i can still feel,
that is what makes all this real
that is what lights the fire
and makes it burn so bright
still looking though
need a torch with some forever light

James Garratt – Sunday 23rd May 1999
