Stairs

I’m 

      Not

            Going 

                       Down

                                  There 

                                             It’s dark

It’s ok, my boy, I’m right here and mummy is downstairs waiting. Just walk between us.

No! 

I’m 

      Not 

             Going 

                         Down 

                                    There

                                              It’s dark

You’ll be fine, I promise. Trust me, nothing will get you. You’re safe.

No!

I’m 

     Not

           Going

                     Down

                               There

                                          It’s dark

Ok, I’ll go down with you. Take my hand and we’ll go together. 

But

      When

                We

                     Go

                         Down

                                    It

                                        Will

                                                Still be dark

Yes, but I’ll be beside you

Yes

I’m glad my father doesn’t ask me to go into the darkness alone. I’m always braver when I know he’s next to me.
