A Face in Many Crowds – Written February 2012 (Aged 36)

A Face in Many Crowds

i have written more about you
since you died
then i did –
when you were alive
it is easier –
to describe and talk about loss
and such absolute pain
but i do feel strange,
i expect the world to see me differently
but it does not
and why should it
i am a face in many crowds
i play my part and in dreams i do sit

James Garratt – February 2012
