My little man,

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

A great big fat one. And you won’t know why.

It’ll catch you by surprise. Make you cry.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

How do I explain what we are about to do?

How it will hurt seemingly out of the blue.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

To fix your finger that one day got stuck.

At first that seemed like simple bad luck.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

It could be a sign of something quite rare.

A disease that actually fills me with fear.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

I am sure it will all turn out just fine.

All part of that unique Gabe design.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

There’ll be no mush when we first get up.

Can’t even force down a sip from your cup.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

I always fret about that horrid pre-op fast.

Wondering how long without fluids you’ll last.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

I hope they put you near the top of the list.

It isn’t guaranteed, although I tried to insist.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

I know they’ll debate crackles on your chest.

That always creates some last minute stress.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

I hate the bit when they put the mask in place.

It’s too hard to see the panic on your face.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

I’ll have to watch as you go limp.

And try not to cry and be such a wimp.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

I’ll sit in the ward as you snooze.

Watching the door for some news.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

Soon you’ll back and I’ll wait as you wake.

Ready to steady you as you quake.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

It will be quite sore due to the slice.

And you’ll be groggy, not feeling so nice.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

They will wrap that wound up big and tight.

And I know that will give you a fright.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

In the one place where touch freaks you out.

The feel and weight will make you shout.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

And, my love, you will be full of fear.

My heart will break with every tear.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

And you’ll not be able to comprehend.

That it won’t be long before you’ll mend.

 

There is going to be an ow tomorrow.

An big ow ow ow.

But mummy will be there holding you tight.

Everything, I promise, will be alright.
