I thought,

assumed,

I had turned the lamplight off.

However,

upon awakening the bulb still glowed,

burning.

How foolish,

such a simple startling fact,

The first item my tired eyes rest upon.

Why can I never,

at least accurately remember,

any final thoughts residing,

restless whispers of worlds,

full yet fleeting,

with which I share my slumbering state?

Lucidity,

a cool drink of water.
