Awesome Window Manager Assign Key Question

For awesome window manager, is it possible write a script to assign a key to spawn a window and afterwards that key will bring that window into focus whenever? For instance, I would like to have F1 spawn a urxvt window. Then, later on if I want to go back to this same window all I have to do is hit F1 again. I plan on using 2 screens and I prefer floating windows.
