The soft undeniable sound of footsteps

Coming from the dark corner of the room

Slowly lifting the duvet higher

Cuddling onto teddy for comfort and protection

Closer those footsteps are now getting

Almost at the bottom of the bed

You scream as something tugs at the duvet

Footsteps run back towards the dark corner

A light switched on illuminates the room

Mum has come to see what’s wrong

The tears she wipes away with love

Reassuring you the monster’s gone

Dark again the room as she leaves you

You wait to hear those steps once more

With duvet high and teddy hugged in tight

It’s only sleep that finds you now
