FROM THE ARTIST:

Little baby like a bird
Frail and lovely thing.
Feed you full and watch you grow
In slumber, nab your wings.
  kissy, kissy
  smile, smile
  don't cry
  Rocka Bye, Rocka Bye.

 

Sticks and stones don't break the bones
Words cut like a knife.
Orders followed, salutes held high
Reality skewed to maintain life.
  kissy, kissy
  smile, smile
  don't cry
  Rocka Bye, Rocka Bye.

Leather meets flesh, up the ante
Silence golden still.
Pass the test and whisper not
Choke down the splintered will.
  kissy, kissy
  smile, smile
  don't cry
  Rocka Bye, Rocka Bye.

Ripened age and captive free
Breath to start anew.
Spirit soars, courage to change
Phoenix through fire – flew.
  Bye kissy.
  Bye smile.
  Cry, Cry
  Rocka Bye, Rocka Bye.

Come full circle, term delivered
Kiss my angel sweetly.
Stroke her head and sing a song
Swaddle those wings so sweetly.
  Kiss, Kiss.
  Smile.
  Rocka Bye Baby
  Rocka Bye.

–Erika Guillory Page
