A cruel night that takes my sleep away
Leaving me uneasy and restless and worn
Thieving me of all undisturbed pleasures
Dreams wafting, safely adorned

I lay tossing this way and that way
Troubled visions flit high and wide
Accompanying nightmares that venture
Guolish figures that enter and glide

A piercing cry was it my imagination
Another scream that sparked my every nerve
What was the spectre trying to tell me
What purpose did all of this serve

A cruel night that had taken my sleep away
Awake to find news of an unearthly shock
A close aunt who had seen me birth until now
Had passed away as midnight had touched the clock
