    HUSH, HUSH,BABY,HUSH


    I LOOK INTO YOUR EYES AND I ENVISION DAYS

    OF YOU A S A CHILD

    AND MY SOUL SPEAKS TO YOURS

    HUSH, BABY, HUSH

    I HOLD YOU IN ALL OF YOUR MANLINESS

    LAY YOUR HEAD ON MY CHEST

    AND JUST, REST

    HUSH, BABY HUSH

    BECAUSE NOW I AM HERE AND I REFUSE TO LEAVE YOUR SIDE

    I'LL PROTECT YOU FROM THE FEARS THAT DARE TO HIDE

    DEEP DOWN, AS YOUR BODY ACHES FROM THE HURT

    HUSH, BABY, HUSH

    EVERY BRUISE AND EVERY SCRAPE

    INSIDE OF ME BABY YOU CAN ESCAPE

    AND I PROMISE, I WON'T JUDGE YOU

    SHHHH.....JUST HUSH

    AS I MASSAGE YOUR SOUL

    TOGETHER WE'LL UNDO EVERY MYTH THAT'S BEEN TOLD

    WHO SAYS A MAN DOESN'T CRY

    YOU'VE HELD IT IN FOR SO LONG AND THERE'S NO WONDER WHY

    YOUR STRENGTH WILL NOT BE COMPROMISE

    I'LL WIPE EACH TEAR DROP FROM YOUR EYES

    JUST HUSH, BABY HUSH, AND LET ME ROCK YOU BY AND BY

    JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES AND FIND THE PEACE

    YOUR HEART SO DESPERATELY SEEKS

    JUST HUSH, BABY, HUSH

    I KNOW IT MUST PAIN SO MUCH

    RELAX AND JUST LET IT ALL GO

    AND ALTHOUGH DADDY'S PLIGHT

    BLURRED MOMMIES SIGHT

    BABY YOU'RE GONNA BE ALRIGHT

    I PROMISE YOU THAT IN DUE TIME

    THOUGH YOU'LL ALWAYS REMEMBER THE PAST

    A STENCH OF PAIN THAT MAY FOREVER LAST

    AND YOUR VISIONS WILL TO

    BE A BRIDGE THAT REMINDS YOU

    BUT BABY THE SOUL IS NOT BLIND

    AND AS A MAN YOU'VE SEEN LIFE

    AND IT HAS TREATED YOU SOOO UNKIND

    AND THERE'S NO WAY TO MAKE THE CLOCK UNWIND

    BUT YOUR SOUL ASKED

    AND MINES ANSWERED

    AND IN ME A TRUE FRIEND YOU DID FIND

    SO PLEASE ALLOW ME TO COMFORT YOU WITH WORDS

    PRAYERS AND TOUCH

    SO FALL DEEP WITHIN MY BOSSOM BABY

    AND HUSH SHHHH.... JUST HUSH

    LATAISHA NICOLE

    What a sweet, embracing lullaby for a man to find peace within. Sister, this was absolutely beautiful, and I'm sure the brothers will love it. How wonderful.

    Thanks Family for the love and for understanding that sometimes after a man has done all he can do, when he's hustled the block, laid the tracks, built the house and put the fires out, he's a just a man with real feelings and emotions and issues sometimes bigger than ours. Being the king of this jungle he has learned to put his emotions down and move forward. But you see I've got a place for him to lay his head and let go.40 DD baby lol Thanks again for the love, Love on! :hearts4:
