For Keeps – Written July 2008 (Aged 33)

For Keeps

this smile of mine
it is yours for keeps

use it to float happy thoughts
when you are asleep

this smile is mine
but i will give it to you
it will be there to help
when times seem less new

this smile of mine
could be a key to a door
it is yours,
yours for sure
have it for keeps
it could be antidote
for when you start to weep

James Garratt – July 2008
