Hello son 

I’m sorry that we started off and things seemed really bad
I was waiting for these feelings see
That I thought I’d never have
I was waiting for the love and stuff that it seemed would never come
It was really very hard for me back then
To feel much like your mum 
 
Hello son
 
I think I’m feeling better now
It’s really been quite hard
I had something called pnd
And it’s been there from the start
I couldn’t really figure out 
Why I felt so low
But I know it wasn’t down to me
That’s just the way it goes

Hello son
 
You really make me happy now
Things are really cool
I laugh at every single thing
You ever seem to do 
I can’t help but feel it though 
This awful feeling inside 
That I missed so many perfect months
and wasted so much time
I promise that it’s different 
Now that I’m feeling well
We’ll carry on with so much fun
And I promise not to dwell
