Lighting Lanterns As We Go – Written Wednesday 10th September 2008 (Aged 33)

Lighting Lanterns As We Go

i lose myself in things
and i wonder what it all means
you know,
to be a human being
because i find roads before me
that others have travelled
then, in my mind, i am young
and dreams refuse to unravel
so i watch the stars come out
and i sit with my friends
and we all wonder, what is this about
lighting lanterns as we go
telling those personal jokes
the ones that only we know
so i look out of windows
just as i am sure others do
because i know i lose myself in things
but most of all, i lose myself in you




James Garratt – Wednesday 10th September 2008
