I Know You Will Help Me – Written January 2012 (Aged 36)

I Know You Will Help Me

how could i love you any more
we have been bonded by such an event
who could i ever trust,
in quite the same way
others would have not understood
or perhaps decided not to stay
i trust you to handle me and my grief
i know you will not let me strangle myself –
with the leash
we are living to the strangest of beats
i know i can trust you to help me find my way
i know you will help me through this grief

James Garratt – January 2012
