It was a dark night; Or were my eyelids shut?
When by me I heard a growl; It nearly churned my gut
The roar was too loud; And it sure drove me crazy
Beads of cold sweat formed; My thoughts were growing hazy
Then there was the second; Only now it was deeper
Sending chills down my spine; This one was no keeper
A rrrrrrip was what came next; Its sound filling the air
I clenched my fists tight; I was drowning in despair
Nails clawed in through my head; Or was it just a dream?
Dread was taking over me; I had to choke my scream
I then open my eyes; A tired gran I see
In the seat next to mine; Twas her snore that frightened me
