Getting to Know You – Written September 2008 (Aged 33)

Getting to Know You

getting to know you
having to show you
show you,
all that i am
and all that i could be
i want you –
to make a claim for –
when i need reassurance
you just left me unsure
and that is not –
what parents are for
they make you a lady
and the rings of the future
now, now i am here
in fact we are both here

James Garratt – September 2008
