Suddenly – Written Sunday 7th March 1993 (Aged 18)


everything looks good
so full of surprise
a flash of your smile
and light projected from your eyes
there is so much more
you have unlocked the rusty door
my love is free
everything is good
and you are the only thing i see
from a distance you are a mirage
up close a dream
everything is an utopian scene
i am a cloud
and in the sky i want to shout aloud
everything looks good
life is as it should be,
without its dreary shroud

James Garratt – Sunday 7th March 1993 (Aged 18)
