Sleep well!

He walks at night and steals your inner peace;
Can tear away the reason from your mind.
His tortures have men pleading for release.
The blackest pit of doom that you can find.
He’ll tear your heart and rip away your soul,
Steal all the passion from the way you feel.
Once he has struck you never can be whole
And nothing else in life is ever real.
Don’t walk at night and never shut your eyes!
You’re safer if you rest while wide awake,
You’ll never know if he is in disguise
With half a chance you know what he will take.

            Sleep well my children you don’t need to fear,
            It isn’t every night that he is near!!!!
