When My Son Was Not Yet Born

When I first heard that the baby my wife was carrying was a boy, I was so happy that I wrote a piano piece for him. Delora told me that the name she had picked for him was Timothy S. Klugh II. Since I rarely used my middle name, and since we did not want my son to be called "Tiny Tim", we decided to call our son by his (and my) middle name… Shawn. In the evenings, my little pregnant wife would sit in the living room as I played piano. The work I played most often was the work I composed for my unborn son. This work I called "Shawn's Song". Tonight (January 25, 2010) I started scoring this work.
