Write Things Down
What am I going to write?
Is has been hours without an idea
The sun cast the last of its light hours ago
There is no moon to shine in the cold night
The stars are blocked by late summer clouds
Music is missing from the radio
Some politician is droning on trying to save his job
I had so many thoughts earlier in the day
Why didn't I write them down?
My mind is blank as the clock strike four
My eyes strain and my head aches in the dim light
Ideas are just avoiding my efforts to find them
Why didn't I write things down like I should?
My eyes close and I drift off to sleep
Tomorrow is another day
I know I will have ideas about what to write
I will remember to write them down
Tomorrow night I will be able to write
If I just remember to write things down
