Don't Forget to Pray


I fell asleep. I heard a scream.
I came awake. It was a dream.
Afraid to sleep. I stayed awake.
How many hours would it take?
Four, five, six or seven,
I counted the hours in my head.

Once again I heard the scream,
although this time not in a dream.
Afraid no more, not like before.
Slept like a babe without a thought.
Strange, what my fear had brought.
What a way to end my day.
Tonight, I'll not forget to pray.

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
