I Wonder If She

I wonder if she kissed my newborn cheek

As she handed me to a stranger?

Did she sit and warn me of life

And all its hidden danger?

Did she think of me the day

I took my very first step?

Did she wonder how I was that day

I got my very first case of strep?

Did she cry the day I was in my teens

And almost lost my life?

Did she wonder who the man was

That finally made me his wife?

Did she cry for all the times

I was told I was never wanted?

Does she understand my anger

At feeling just a little bit haunted?

I wonder if she regrets

The entire adoption

Especially when she told me

She had considered the other option.
