Sometimes I awake in the night
Words going around in my head
Screaming to be written down
But I feel the need for sleep instead

I twist and I turn trying to ignore them
These words so jumbled yet clear
Then I search for a pen or a pencil
But there isnít one about I fear

I decide I will write them tomorrow
Tonight I must have some sleep
Then I try to ignore these words in my head
But even through my dreams they creep

Morning comes and I decide I will write them
But the words seem to have hurried away
I try to remember each word that I heard
But my mind has gone blank today

The lesson I learned from this disturbed night
Was always pen and paper keep near
Then you will never lose those words
When they come whispering in your ear
