With Me Safely

My babies mean the world to me

They’re growing up and I can’t see

I miss them endlessly

I wish it were as simple as a cup of tea

There is no excuse honestly

Promised I was coming to set them free

Not realizing how hard it would be

I wish I could watch them sleep

As I hum a gentle melody

Because of so much negativity

It’s broken down our family tree

My world will remain incomplete

‘Til my babies are with me safely
