Releasing the Secret to David
Are you ready, David,
for the reason you were born?
If not, stop here.
Take a look at the film, “Ordinary People”.
Two siblings, and a family unable to cope
after the loss of one.
If there had been three,
things would have been totally different.
You were number three.
Not to fill a gap.
Not as a backup.
The film just seemed to tip the scales
as we weighed the weighty decision.
We’re horrendously glad,
we’re stupefyingly proud
of the man you’ve become.
Don’t get me wrong.
We wouldn’t have had it any other way.
But if you want to know the impetus,
before we knew you or anything you would become,
it’s all there, in a two hour capsule of a film.
