I Am Not Perfect (First Version) – Written October 2009 (Aged 34)

I Am Not Perfect (First Version)

i am not perfect but this is my life
and it is where i live
i do what i feasibly can
and i always try to give
but today i lost someone
someone i should have caught
when she fell towards my arms
but i know we will be fine
and i know she will make him happy
i know i am not complete
and i have lived for some years
and often it was behind the lights

James Garratt – October 2009
