Confetti and Cheers – Written Monday 28th June 2010 (Aged 35)

Confetti and Cheers

they have been married
for so many years
after all they got married to –
confetti and cheers
but how long –
do those cheers last?
and when does the confetti
become a memory of the past
there they are,
trying to keep alive
the animal they once tamed
the love and emotion
which to their lives was the frame
but now,
it feels as hard as hell
so take up gardening
and build yourself a wishing well
or just become friends with time
because time will always tell
i am yours and you are mine
that’s just a declaration of love
that over time will only ever bind
it’s the chord that becomes a knot
long after the, ‘i do’,
and the forget me nots

James Garratt – Monday 28th June 2010
