Be Special, Be There – Written Tuesday 10th June 1997 (Aged 22)

Be Special, Be There

be special, be my hope
be my thoughts –
in these lonely days –
that force us –
to count the hours
and although i do –
not really believe in them
i can imagine the gods
giving you all the reasons
be special, be with me
whoever you are
get a telephone number
be right there
hard with the feelings
caring with the stare
be up in there in lights
if not now –
then in your dreams tonight
if you are talking of action
if you are wanting to care
be special, be there

James Garratt – Tuesday 10th June 1997
