I woke up in the middle of night
I looked around my room
And there it was…
Sitting peacefully on my dresser

Staring right into my soul
Eyes glowing like a diamond
Hair bright as a sun

There was no movement
Was it actually real?
Will it attack me? has no motion within it

Full of fear, I was
Praying of no danger
I turned on my light
And… my nightmare was gone

Was I dreaming?

Was it just a reality?
