I quite like
The shadows of the night,
That teach me how to fear something
That was only made of light.
I see a little animal
Or at least I think I do,
And then I see it's nothing more
Than some socks left there by you.
I let myself be tricked again
By half closing my eyes,
And seeing what appears sometimes
To give me a surprise.
The shadows of the night
Are all lessons and all friends,
I let them give me messages
And see what darkness sends.
I watch them when I wake up
In the middle of the night,
But I like them and they're comforting
And they don't give me a fright.
