Just the Wind
It’s just the wind, my mother said,
so snuggle up inside your bed
and think of things that make you smile,
you’ll fall asleep in just a while.
It’s just the wind, she said to me,
what else could all those noises be?
What else could all those noises be,
the ones that keep on scaring me?
The ghostly murmurs and the creaking,
the creatures in my closet, speaking,
planning how they’ll slowly creep
into my room when I’m asleep.
When I’m asleep, they’ll sneak inside
and find themselves a place to hide,
then whisper nightmares in my ear,
weird words that only I can hear,
then I’ll sit up in bed and scream,
because I had a scary dream!
I had a scary dream last night.
I made my mom turn on the light,
and quickly check my closet floor,
but they weren’t in there anymore.
It’s just the wind, she said to me.
What else could all those noises be?
