I got your cards that you bought me; ignored them
because I thought calling would cause me a boredom
and of course I'm ashamed to admit
that every birthday wished me further away
from your midst 'til I couldn't face taking the risk
I guess I lost my faith a little bit
but then realised a fundamental basic
More than any other you encouraged me to be creative
so it might be quite belated
but I love you, Margaret and David

You were with me in my first days
but then I shut myself away during my worst days
aA half-baked reason why I'm worth cake
but now 11 star birthday is part of my wordplay
You bought me a calligraphy set
I'm ashamed to say I haven't done calligraphy yet
I was a little perplexed and treated it with neglect
and yet now I make my living fiddling with text
Some of your gifts still bring back images
The little set of carved farmyard miniatures
The tree was my favourite piece
and it still is when I play with my niece
so yeah, I've done myself a favour at least
now I'm back on the rails and I'm taming the beast
in a similar way to how my birthday cake did
it's time for you two to be celebrated
so it might be quite belated
but I love you, Margaret and David

was obviously
a hobby each of you wanted me to do
I never got into it properly
but now I love it, kind of like a kid with broccoli
My tastes took time to develop in the dark room
and now I can't do without it, honestly
You offered me an option
and I made you feel you'd been forgotten
Now the season's hot
and Evesham's lost some leaves and blossoms
but let's speak a little
let's speak a little more often
