Darkness has come,
is off from
The all houses
In the neighborhood!

Dogs are already howling,
I’m left alone at home.
Dad and mum
Are not yet back from the workplace.

It is already mid-night,
I can hear someone
Moving around the compound.
Could it be a ghost?

Oh, I am going to hide
Myself under the bed!
Oh My God!
I’m even sweating in fear,
Today I’m gone.

Someone is coming
Towards the door!
I can hear the footsteps.
He is knocking at
The door,
He is calling my name.

He is still knocking at
The door,
His voice sounds like
That of my dad.

That is my daddy.
Dad, mum,
Let me come and open
The door for you.
