Oops! (Posted: Jun 6)

Thank You For Visiting!

I'd just settled in bed last night,
Ignored the outside landing light,
Was falling into a well needed sleep,
When suddenly heard a noise so deep.

I threw my duvet to the floor,
I was a sleepy head at this point no more,
Again it rattled throughout the house,
Surely this wasn't just a mouse.

I grabbed my slippers and slipped them on,
Looked at the clock it was half past one,
II felt more angry than I did scared,
As I headed out to the top of the stairs

All of a sudden the noise arose,
It came from the spare room but the door was closed,
I raced across; a baseball bat in toe,
What the noise was I didn't know.

I opened the door with a flash,
And soon came out an almighty crash,
The light flicked on and to my dread,
Lay my husband with an inflamed head.

He looked up at me with his eyes wide,
Tears rolled out and so he cried,
I nearly fainted at what I'd done,
I wanted to just turn around and run.

He asked me what I was thinking,
Asked me nicely if I'd been drinking,
I explained to him what I'd heard,
He looked at me with a glace so weird.

Said "I didnt hear it, I was asleep,"
Then suddenly the realisation began to creep,
The noise I'd heard was my husbad snore,
And felt guilty all the more.

Now he's having therapy,
Learning how to sleep and re trust me,
He's on tablets for his migrane,
But I bet for sure I wont hear that noise again.
