My Son by Heart

My Son By Heart

I wasn’t there the day you were born
Or when you took your first steps
I never changed your diapers, fed you a bottle,
Or rocked you to sleep

I wasn’t there to hear your first words
To hear your first laugh or see you sit up
I did not bring you into this world
Or help to choose your name

But you are my son by heart
I knew right from the start
That my life you’d be a part
And you are my son by heart

We were brought together
Through the wonderful love of your father
It has not always been easy
But now I’m sure it was my destiny.

And you are my son by heart
I knew right from the start
That my life you’d be a part
And you are my son by heart

I’ll be there for graduations
All the times you’ll make me proud
And I’ll always be there to listen
Even if you need to cry out loud

I’ll be there as time passes
As you make a family of your own
I’ll just look at you and remember
How much loving you has helped me grow.

Cause, Nick…
You are my son by heart
I knew it right from the start
That my life you’d be a part
And that you would CHANGE my heart…
Yes, you are my son by heart
