Hush momma, please do not cry
Hush momma, please do not die
Please stay from deaths' cold touch
Hush momma, please hush

Hush momma, I am here
Hush momma, do not fear
Into Heaven do not rush
Hush momma, please hush

Hush momma, you are cold
Hush momma, you I hold
My heart is going to crush
Hush momma, please hush

    This was written a couple of years back when I was working as a domestic cleaner on a hospital ward. There was a sideroom where an elderly female patient was dying, she was crying in pain and I heard her daughter saying, "Hush Momma don't cry". Life hurts us and I wrote these words because we never want to lose our loved ones. Blessings Chris
