Hush, baby, don’t cry
You’re only just three.
Blankie’s somewhere,
We’ll find him,
You’ll see.

Hush darling, don’t sob
You’re only just nine.
More soccer matches will come, and
You’ll play them just fine.

Hush honey, don’t fret
You’re only just twelve.
Boys tease you ‘cause they like you
In a few years they’ll treat you swell.

Hush love, don’t weep
You’re only sixteen.
Don’t know who you are yet?
You’re not supposed to. Just be.

Hush sweetie, don’t shed those tears
You’re only twenty-five.
One day you’ll land your big break.
Just gotta bide some time.


***

Hush dear, don’t cry
You know, I’m eighty-three.
I’ve lived my good long life.
Now it’s your turn—
Live it better than me.
