She is Church – Written November 2002 (Aged 27)

She is Church

she is church
the holy where i am
she is miracle
the true promised land
she is a goddess
who i found in darkness
and unlike others,
she held me tight
she is the sweetest hymn
she is a religious light
she is where my life begins
she is a book,
the altar and the font
the statue with the tears
what more could i want
she is my religion
my place of holy worship
unlike others,
she does not come with falseness
it all just fits
she is always real
not a holy ghost
no need to transform bread or wine
for we are always case

James Garratt – November 2002
