It's a letter. It's me mom's.

To my son, Billy.

Dear Billy:
I know I must seem like a distant memory to you,
which is probably a good thing.

It will have been a long time

and I will have missed seeing you grow.

Missed you crying, laughing and shouting.

I will have missed telling you off.

But please know that I was always there.

With you through everything.

I always will be.

And I am proud to have known you.

And I'm proud that you were mine.

Always be yourself.

I'll love you forever.


Billy Elliot, Stephen Daldry.
