Rescued

Rating: 5.0

Hush sweet child
dry your eyes.
You're safe now forever
it's all right.

No more sadness
no more pain.
He'll never again hurt you
or scream out your name.

You're mommy is coming
you won't be alone.
She'll be safe here with you
you won't be hungry or cold.

No more bruises
no more broken bones.
No more beatings
with bats and phones.

No more touching
of that private place.
Only love and warmth
I give to replace.

Food and laughter
kisses and hugs.
A world so much better
that anything that was.

Look sweet child
you're mommy is here.
Just like I promised
and I'll always be near.

That man who once hurt you
is gone from your life.
You're safe now in Heaven
no more will you cry.
