Poetry; And I'm In Bed Safe and Warm....



Into bed I slide, tired and ready for sleep

I can hear the wind whipping the trees into a frenzy

... And I’m in bed safe and warm.



It's tearing and whistling around the house

Trying to find just the tiniest gap so that it can come in

... And I’m in bed safe and warm.



The house creaks and stretches and stays strong

Like my love lying asleep next to me

... And I’m in bed safe and warm.



So, so tired but it’s wonderful to lie awake in the dark

listening to the enraged wind outside

... And I’m in bed safe and warm.
