Nightmare

Tiresome days and long chilly nights,
Dancing snowflakes plant a shroud on the ground.
As indoor blazing fireplace seeks to warm,
A customary reading and bedding down.
Phoned my sweetheart, goodnight and sweet dreams.
Off to dreamland and a real nightmare,
Saw a black Panther fiercely bounding my way.
Each stride seems to be an augmented two,
My hasty retreat landed me in a pit.
Surrounded by snakes and unknown creatures,
My phone rang, my sweetheart calling.
Hello sweetheart! Such dreadful a nightmare,
In twin pools of sweat we exchanged tales.
Same dreadful nightmare we seemed to share,
Fearful, she demanded insight to such dark irony.
Terrified me tried to allay her fears,
Sympathetic words to soothe her concern.
There are trials in our lives each day,
Threats to our life will arise to block.
Exercise faith in our wise Creator’s plan,
He has shown us the path and the means.
Together we face all that stands in our way,
Stand with me in strong bonded love.
