the sun in the attic

It’s not that I was always scared
of the creeping creatures in the dark,
but I must admit that at times
they drove me more fervently
to hide beneath the sheets.

But then my son drew me a picture
and explained why such fears
were unfounded, considering
that even in the darkest attics
the sun still hangs resplendent.
