I don't know if there is another one similar to this that you are thinking of, but the one I'm familiar with is from Robert Frost's poem"Walking Through Woods on a Snowy Evening" It ends with "but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep"
This is my favorite Robert Frost poem...maybe because I always have so much to do...and therefore"miles to go before I sleep..." smile

Here's the full text:

Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening
by Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.


Short bio on the man and links to his poems here.

Peace and peas, Mo

Gulta cavat lapidem non vi sed saepe cadendo.
~ Ovid (43 BC - c. 17 AD), Epistoloe Ex Ponto.
