Mystery in the Night

by Nashrah Tanvir aged 16

I slept in my bed fast asleep,
I never heard even a peep.
A break of silence occurred
And from darkness a shadow emerged.
Then the hand and the fingers,
“At the mid-night hour what is this behaviour?”
Is it a ghost or zombie?
Came to eat me.”
So I prayed, “Save me, Almighty.”
I trembled and covered my lap,
From the window I heard tap, tap, tap!
I went to the window and sighed with relief,
The mystery in the night was only a tree and its leaf.
