Hush My Babies

Hush my babies

don’t say a word

Mommy’s coming

no matter what you’ve heard

Take care of each other

while I’m gone

Just keep repeating

this simple song

I love each of you

with all my heart

Try to stay strong

while we’re apart

Be your best

in every way

And so you know

I think of you every day

So hold steadfast

by the light of the moon

Mommy’s coming for you

really, really soon
