If And When – Written April 2003 (Aged 28)

If And When

if and when,
searching for the dream
i cannot forget the years gone by
putting the pieces together
if and when,
and what can we do
hands can be stronger than yesteryear
i hold on right
i feel the fear
but i hold a light
close and near
if and when,
thinking about back way back then
decisions i made
feelings that were lent
searching the dream that we follow
never let the hope fade away
or the inside be hollow

James Garratt – April 2003
