Yesterdays – Written December 2009 (Aged 34)


are the foundation bricks
to the life we build
dreams are planted in the garden
who knows what they will yield
all these question that i receive
the ones that i just try to field…

are what we talk about
in the later hours
when closeness is required
sometimes when we need hope
we can be so inspired
i wonder though,
how many of us are correctly wired

are what,
we once called tomorrow
in the days,
when we had to beg and borrow
when we lent on friends
in part, to stem our sorrow
all of them came our way

James Garratt – December 2009
