Lock the doors and light the street,
Believe you’re safe in your retreat,
Until the wind with prying fingers
Leaves a fear that lingers.
Step out into the lustrous sun
With every ghostly battle won,
Safe in each familiar sight:
Terror fades in broad daylight.
So banish dark and fear away
And with false light turn night to day.
Shadows inside us always fall;
An inner twilight shrouds us all.
