Hush, Little Baby

Sometimes I write random songs for my baby, whom I miscarried this past year. This is one of them. Mommy loves you HJU

Hey, I'm writing you a letter
Hey, I'm hoping it gets better
'Cause you're all that's on my mind
Hey, I search the sky for you
Hey, do you look for me too
'Cause I'm never very hard to find

Because I'm lying here, staring straight
At Paradise, who stole you away
And I'm lying in the grass tonight
Singing to you, your lullaby

Hey, I scream at you sometimes
Even though I know the fault's all mine
But I still feel like I'm missing my soul
Hey, I sing you songs sometimes
Hey, you're inside every rhyme
And I think of you when I feel alone

Because I'm lying here, staring straight
At Paradise, who stole you away
And I'm lying in the grass tonight
Singing to you, your lullaby

Hush little baby, don't say a word
Mommy's gonna buy you a mockingbird
And if that mockingbird won't sing
Then mommy's gonna sing instead

The End
