Arthur hears from his mother who is still in prison. Arthur has been taken into care, & is alone & unloved. He treasures his mother's letter.


A letter from an old friend

Be nice to see you, so good to see the sunshine
so fine to see you & have some time at home
well, how do you do? are you keeping well as ever
so much to tell you in the time before I go

we can make the time to stay up late
you're the gravy on my plate, I've missed you

so nice to see you, I could stay here for the summer
so fine to see you, and no rush to get away
what do you do? what's it like in your world
since I saw you, are people as they say?

you're the sunlight shining through
changed my sky from grey to blue, I've missed you

And it's no laughing matter, I hear you say
you took a whirlwind path, me in the way

I used to need you, I was under the weather
it would be true to say how sad to let you go
before I lst you, I could lose my grip forever
but now I tell you, I'm vack where I belong

I've sipped the bitterness & blinked through tears
What's been happening all these years?
I've missed you
