Alone in the Night

Open field of darkness
Pitch black surrounding me
Yet I felt protected
As my guardian angel watched over me
I was young coming from the store
Walking thru the school yard late in the eve
It was then I realized not a single person
in sight
Just the sound of the night
Spooky as it seemed
I wasn't scared I felt secure
As arms unfolded embracing me
Shielding me from any harm 
That might of come my way
Finally home I arrived 
Safe and sound I nestled up in bed
Saying my prayers and thanking
God for taking care of me.
