Birthday Cake – Written Thursday 17th November 2011 (Aged 36)

Birthday Cake

life may not be the birthday cake
which you dreamed of
and rolling rivers –
may sometimes swallow gentle streams
but in true connection
we find out what all this might just mean
i am me, but like all of us –
a vulnerable human being
life may not be the place –
of which you once so readily dreamed of
and its words may not be so poetic
in the way which they speak
but there is comfort in each one
when there are times grief




James Garratt – Thursday 17th November 2011
