Maybe. Just Maybe.

king's throne

They miss the whisper that runs
any day in your mind,
“Who are you really, wanderer?”
and the answer you have to give
no matter how dark and cold
the world around you is:
“Maybe I’m a King.”

    rare that I get up and beat you to the computer Dave. getting old sucks as I don’t sleep anymore…BUT, the good thing is I have morning messages to read from other insomniacs!
    thanks as always for a good start of the day.


    • Laughing. I did get a late jump Steve. I actually worked out last night (unusual for me). Struggled to get out of bed. Yes, getting old sucks and yes, I don’t sleep anymore either. Thank you for the chuckle this morning as well as you kind words. P.S., post coming on napping. I took one of those yesterday after I returned from work. That threw me out of whack as well.


  2. Dearest King, It is my ardent wish that thou, who art far younger than some of your loyal court, refrain from comments that speak about the occasional surprises that visit one’s body as it ages. 😉


  3. Umm reminds me of two beautiful lines,
    “Each year harder to live within,
    Each year harder to live without…”
