        My family now is still so small,
        Just my wife and our grown son.
        My wife is the one with all
        The relatives, sheltering every little one.

        It's hard to decide what to do with this letter.
        My mom says she's been searching for ten years.
        She adds that if her life had been better,
        She would have kept me and saved me the tears.

        It's like my wife and I had conspired,
        That I'd run to Mom with arms widespread.
        But everything's changed since I retired,
        Because I have a lifetime pension instead.
