It Just Takes a Day – Written October 2008 (Aged 33)

It Just Takes a Day

it just takes a day to miss you
how did i ever jump those cracks
and avoid the gaps
when you were not in my life
when i entered the fairground
and when i had a wife
when i first heard the sound
that at sixteen changes my life
someone on the fringe
who on life’s sadness
they have always binged
they said i was such and such
but they never got the point
you found my touch
but they could not identify my joints
it just takes a day for me to miss you
and my, how i miss you




James Garratt – October 2008
