I tried thinking of the word

I tried thinking of the word,
but none came to mind.

I tried thinking about what to do,
but I had no idea.

I was trying to dream,
but my sleep was too deep.

The moment passes me by,
but my memory couldn’t grasp it.

I tried looking outside for answers,
but it shared no clues.

I closed my eyes,
but there was nothing to see.

I tried thinking out loud,
but I had the wrong tone of voice.

If only the words came out right,
I would understand.
