January poem #2
Another day of trying
Another day with lots of sighing
Another day to end up crying
Another day you feel like dying
You wonder when it all will end
You wonder how you can help this mend
That’s when you fall and stumble
When you feel lost and humble
There’s only one place left to go
That’s into the arms of your God and Lord.
A couple nights ago I woke up with someone singing the above lyrics in my head. Does anybody recognize these words? I really hate to steal them, but I thought I better check. I think that whoever that is who lives inside of my head wrote this and felt the urge to wake me at three am so that I could jot down the words. Too bad I don’t know how to write music or I would’ve written that down too, but the tune is lost forever. Or at least I hope it is because if I wake up another night with this in my head I will be seeking psychiatric help.
I think that most writers have been awakened in the night with a great scene from their book in their head, and they have to get up to write it down. Does anyone know if song writers wake up with new songs in their heads? Just wondering.
