Hush little baby please don’t cry
It hurts me so to say good-bye
Since daddy left we’ve been alone
I’m Wishing he would come back home

They have come to take you away
I will not see you after today
I’ve tried so hard to keep you alive
Hoping someway we could survive

These people they don’t understand
As they take you away blankie in hand
You’ll never know me as you should
If only they’d let me you know I would

I’d keep you right here held by my heart
But now they say that I we must part
The tears drown me in painful sorrow
I will not wake and see you tomorrow

Bigger and stronger you shall grow
And you mommy you may never know
Hush little baby please don’t cry
It hurts me so to say good-bye

Situations like this happen every day all around the world. I wanted to bring a little reality to the world of poetry...
