Treasure Island

Dave Alan Walker

(Pudsey, Leeds)

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

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
