As I lay my head down to slumber

My busy mind begins to wander

What is hiding in the night?

Oh no, oh my, what a fright!

From the shadows the dreams rise

Quickly I try to divert my eyes

A fear so real and beyond compare

Hurry, hurry, get me out of there...


My eyes begin to slowly flutter

My head slows down and ceases to stutter

A sound so familiar I begin to hear

My mother is calling, easing my fear

Daylight shines through into my room

The demons, the darkness, they no longer loom

It's time for school, I am safe

Until tonight when I go back to that place.
