Night

The 
bats 
are 
flying
and 
crickets 
creeping
they 
angels 
in 
heaven 
are 
singing
while 
in 
our 
warm 
bed 
we 
are 
dreaming
under 
the 
starless 
night 
that 
is 
dark 
and 
still
and 
the 
mosquitoe 
bites, 
are 
delight 
fill
we 
sleep,we 
have 
beautiful 
sweet 
dream
while 
many 
have 
nightmares 
that 
makes 
them 
scream
we 
only 
pray 
for 
protection
we 
can't 
make 
angelic 
selection
but 
we 
wake 
next 
morn, 
strong 
and 
sound
we 
never 
know 
how 
long 
we've 
laid 
on 
ground
at 
times 
in 
starfilled 
sky 
or 
night 
of 
rain
we 
sleep, 
wake 
up, 
see 
ourselves 
still 
sane.
