will you sleep safe in your bed?
will you let your nightmares wither
as sweet dreams come fill your head?
do you tiptoe
in your closet
when you know you’re all alone?
can you look
into his eyes
and face the great unknown?
you don’t ask for much this year
just an end to all your worries
and the memories of fear
look deep into
and you will soon perceive
that a kiss is far, far better
than a tear could ever be
