At age 20 the birth mother told me after the fact , that I had a son that had been given up for adoption to avoid a family scandal. We were both young and had only one night together. I was astounded at how courageous her decision was to have the child and how hard it was to keep it from her family. The adoption to a loving family seemed like the best situation at the time. It's been 34 years and well, I thought this song might help others not to make my mistakes....hope you like it


I Wonder If You
by Robert Louis Crane Copywrite 2011

Verse # 1
Your Momma told me her secret, a long long time ago
And I swore I would keep it ,
I was just too young to know
that this secret I'd be keeping...
would be my biggest regret
That secret was you my son … whom I've never met

Verse # 2
I think God had a plan for someone to hold your hand when you first tried to walk
I bet your mom and dad
where so proud when you said ,
your first words as you talked
And I wish I was there
to dry your eyes and hold you tight
when those bad dreams awoke you
like they often do in the middle of the night

And I wonder if you , ever wonder too … ?
About what could been if I ever met you
Not a day can go bye , I'm not reminded of you
My life's biggest regret, is the secret I've kept
My son, whom I've never met

Verse #3
Are your eyes crystal blue
like your grandmas' were too ?
Do you have my curly hair?
Is there a scar on your knee
when you from that tree
that you climbed on a dare?
I wish I'd given you the keys to the family car for your first big date
And I'm sorry that I wasn't there to see you graduate

And I wonder if you , ever wonder too … ?
about what could been if I ever met you
Not a day can go bye , I'm not reminded of you
My Life's biggest regret is the secret I've kept
You're the son whom I've never met

Verse # 4
I dream you are all grown with a house and wife and a son of your own
Did you teach him to fish and ride a bike and catch a ball that you've thrown
And if you cherish them half as much as I do of all my thoughts of you
Well then you're truly blessed my beautiful son whom I never knew
