Night Walker

She came to me

in my sleep

As often as she did

This boy I was

didn’t sleep

For a walk was

better then

a rest

Tried as she did

to keep….

Even tried

to tie my feet

Nothing ever


I was bent

to walk

Even tried to

see what layed


she found

me once


Still I can hear

hear voice

as if was


Saying all the

words a child

wants to hear

To keep me safe

Until I’d stop


To find life

in my sleep


I never wrote about my sleep walking as a child

It wasn’t something I consciously thought about

Today it came to me in a flash reading something else I wrote
