Loved And Cared For – Written August 2009 (Aged 34)

Loved And Cared For

we never realise –
how much –
we are loved and care for
it is not,
till we throw it away
till we have misused it
or thrown it around
and abused it
then suddenly we realise
we take it for granted
to accurately value love
and all that care
i watch the crossing –
for the traffic –
that comes forth
know the love of strangers
is easily sought

James Garratt – August 2009
