What If Someday Never Comes – Written September 2002 (Aged 27)

What If Someday Never Comes

what if someday never comes
if it never turns up
if it runs out of bus fare
or i run out of luck
what if, ‘maybes’, or only ever that
what if it never becomes positive
who is going to share the madness
in which we all live
if it changes its mind
if it does not have loose change
or none that it can find
what if life really stalls
what if we fall off our bikes
and the rain really starts to fall
who will tuck us in at night
what if someday never comes
if it decides enough is enough
now it feels as if life has let us down
and that all this, it is too much




James Garratt – September 2002
