In Another Lifetime -Written Monday 7th June 2021 (Aged 46)

In Another Lifetime

i see your hands
and in another lifetime
with different light
i would have taken them
and in another lifetime
would have defined the reason
and another plunge
into the deep end of the pool
would have occurred
with no idea of how to survive

i see your hands
and your face looking back at me
i know what it means
and in another lifetime
under different light
we would have held each other tight
but where do
these stepping stones lead to
what balmy destination awaits
in another lifetime
in another version of my fate

James Garratt – Monday 7th June 2021
