Monsters Under Bed

When I was a child there were monsters under the bed
Monsters lurked unseen waiting to be fed
I dare not place small feet down at night
For who knew what would be in their sight
Covers snug around me so I couldn’t see
What lurked below me
For a child terrified of the unseen
Hoping they wouldn’t invade my dreams
Now I’m grown but still there might be
Monsters lurking under my bed waiting for me
