Sleep Safe

Sleep safe
without any nightmares
or any fears
sleep safe

When you wake
in the morning
they'll be no more dark
just sunlight in your eyes

You don't need
to be scared of the dark
any more
because mummy's going to love you
even more

If you ever get scared
at night
look out of the window
at the cold moonlight

You see
it's not even dark
at all

So sleep safe
without any nightmares
or any fears
sleep safe

Because nothings going to hurt you any more
child in the night
close your eyes and sleep
nothings going to hurt you any more

    I like this poem overall, but especially 'sleep safe' repetition which makes it really soothing. Your poetry is that of compassion. You're a man of compassion. I am glad you let yourself be discovered. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful filling inside the feeling here...shelter the night with rest of calmness...
    'Child in the night...nothing hurt you anymore' sounds like a child stop thinking about the fears when it lost in a dream...by the voice of calming..Like it, finally poem hunter let me comment on this.. :) _Unwritten SOul (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
