The Sacrifice – Written February 2003 (Aged 28)

The Sacrifice

i will always be apologising
i will always be making up ground
i will be one rung,
underneath your feet
i will always be trying to catch up
drinking out of your cup
i can never do enough
even if i do it twice
because in your eyes,
you make the greatest sacrifice

James Garratt – February 2003
