In At The Deep End – Written Tuesday 31st January 2012 (Aged 36)

In At The Deep End

thrown in at the deep end
with these family trends
you have performed perfectly
coping with the waves –
and the undercurrents

it is not easy, well it never can be
stepping into a situation like this
where people are wringing their hands
for the person so very missed
you should be proud of yourself
and you should stand out and be noticed –
for who you are
we are very lucky, let’s travel far

James Garratt – Tuesday 31st January 2012
