Hush Little Baby

I felt you there,
so close yet so far.
Two months to go,
my bright little star.

I saw your picture,
and I felt your touch.
The way you moved,
I've never pissed so much.

Hush little baby,
I'll tuck you in.
All I need is for,
your lift to begin.

Look at us now,
together in the light.
At least, that's how I wish it was,
but for now you're out of sight.

Where did I go wrong?
Oh, I know.
Your daddy didn't like me,
and he showed me so.

Hush little baby,
don't make a sound.
He'll come for you again,
I can't go another round.

He took you from me,
he broke my heart.
The pain, the blood,
and now I've come apart.

Split in two,
losing faith.
Holding my breath,
as I wait.

Hush little baby,
don't be sad.
Momma's gonna end,
your dead-beat dad.

Momma sobbed,
and grandma cried.
They told us that today,
is the day you died.

You saved momma's life,
but I couldn't save yours.
I can never thank you enough,
don't put in a good word.

Hush little baby,
you're more than secure.
Momma's soul may be tainted,
but yours will forever be pure

I never got the chance,
to hold you tight.
Momma should have tried harder,
to win the fight.

Now you're in,
a better place.
Your light shines on me,
through the good lord's grace.

Hush little baby,
momma's right here.
And with Him on your side,
you've got nothing to fear.
