Like Lego

Photo by Graham A Stephen (



Like Lego we fit nice and tight
under the sheet
where nightmares remain quiet.

When he’s next to me,
the dark doesn’t scratch; it doesn’t bite.
Nothing to be frightened about.

His deep breathing reassures me
sleep is not a fantasy.
I coax the sandman to take my hand.

With his arms encircling me,
my eyes drift shut and shadows leave.
The darkness whispers bravely –

I’ll be back when your love is gone.
Rest now, my dear and remember –
nightmares never ever stay away.
