Before I Get Old – Written Thursday 2nd January 2003 (Aged 27)

Before I Get Old

write something happy
write something beautiful
when the sky turns grey
and only you feel blue
write something precious
but etch it in stone
because paper is a fragment
and will leave you all alone
write something that changes the world
when all most are trying to do
is keep out the cold
it is the way of things
just trying to keep out the cold
just trying to keep out the cold
write something beautiful
before i get old
just trying to keep out the cold




James Garratt – Thursday 2nd January 2003
