Go to sleep my mummy said

go to sleep my mummy said
as she tucked me up in my bed
let mr sandman send you a dream 
and please tonight try not to scream
sleep well my precious little one
now your busy day is done
theres no monster hiding behind your door
or crawling about on the bedroom floor
the nightmares are not really real
no matter how scary they actually feel
your safe here and free from harm
so rest well my child and be calm….

those were the words my mummy said
as she tucked me up in my bed

my mummys gone long since dead
there’s no one now to tuck me in bed
the sandmans stolen all my dreams
all thats left are my muffled screams
my days of peaceful sleep have gone
when these endless days are finally done
i even miss the monsters behind my door
while dreading his creak upon the floor
for me the nightmares are now all too real
leaving me with wounds that never heal
never now can i be safe and calm
when the bad man comes to do me harm

….go to sleep my mummy said
as she tucked me up in my bed….
