Whispers in the dark

Promises never kept

Footsteps down the hall

So soft and gentle

Only you hear

They come to you

You and no one else

In the darkness

Under the cover of night

They come to comfort

And offer protection

You long to join them

You tell them of your desire

They have one reply

Its not your time young one

You beg and plead

And yet they do not bend

Humans

Mere mortals

Do not effect them
