Inspiration comes as a vapor A phantom, rarely caught A shadow seen for a moment A missing second thought It's a whisper, then it's silent A reoccurring dream Just a glint in the darkness A momentary gleam It's just a hint of an echo That doesn't make it back A prayer that's been answered That gets lost inside the black It's a long forgotten memory In the back of someone's mind Sometimes it comes as deja vu Or a voice unto the blind Inspiration comes as a vapor Only fleeting at best It can't be owned by anyone For it is only a guest
