ON THIS DAY I FOUND OUT

It was just other day
I came in very late from a trip out of town (about 4 A.M.)
And as always any time I am out of town
My wife spent the night with her Mom & Dad
I had a lot to do so I got up about 8 A.M.
My wife got home about 8:30 A.M.
I was about to brush my teeth
When my wife walked in
So I ask her what did the Dr. say
You see my wife was about a year behind on her checkup
She calmly said, “I’m pregnant”
I laughed and said no really what did the Dr. say
Once again she said, “I’m pregnant”
So I told her I’m not that stupid
So she stepped back around the corner with
A lab report and a diaper bag
At that point I knew she was not kidding
And I was that stupid
As I walked to her and hugged her as gently as I
Had ever hugged her (as if I squeezed to tight a baby may pop out)
On this day I found out what love was
I thought I knew, but I found out on this day
I didn’t have a clue


The days quickly went by and soon the day came
As we went into the delivery room
I was not prepared for what I was about to experience
As my baby was delivered, I experienced a love I had never known
On this day, I really found out what love was
At that moment if my baby needed a
Heart he could have mind
We named him Benjamin


As he grew we could not have been happier
Wow the first time he sat up, crawled, said Dada, Mama, by by ,
Walked, waved, did patty cake
It’s the most fun I had ever had


But for some reason things began to change
Dada, mama, bye bye, went away
But every day we thought it would come back
At his two-year check up, the Dr. asked
How is his language and we said for some
Reason he has stopped talking
The Dr. said that concerns me and recommended speech therapy
So speech therapy began but no words not one
But every day we thought maybe tomorrow we will get words


Then one day I was researching speech delay
And the word AUTISM came up
As I read the symptoms and
Other family stories it was like reading a story about my baby
On this day I found out what scared was
I thought I knew
But on this day I found out I didn’t have a clue
As I researched autism almost 20 hours a day for several days
And it became obvious my son was autistic
On this day I found out what a broken heart was
I thought I knew but on this day I found out I didn’t have a clue


As I did my research, vaccines and
The dangers of vaccines kept coming up
And how they have known the dangers of mercury for years
On this day I found out what mad was
I thought I knew but I found out on this day I didn’t have a clue


As days came and went I found out things I wish I did not know
I found out what it feels like as a 42-year-old man to
Stand in the middle of Wal-mart and
Sob uncontrollably just because a little boy was
Talking to his daddy, and have to go to the back
Of the store till I could get myself together enough to leave the store


As I did research I found out that the Government
Had protected the drug companies from legal action and
Are trying to protect them more
On this day I found out what its like to be betrayed
I thought I knew but on this day I found out I didn’t have a clue
