If You Fall in Love with a King
If you fall in love with a King, he will take possession of your
heart, mind and soul.
If you should catch a gleam of his love, you will become his
If your eyes should rest in his eyes, then for the rest of your life
you will be searching every face for his light.
If you should fall in love with a King, then he can only wave to
you from his palace, and draw you toward his court.…
No matter how high a station you might have held in your own
country, compared to the brilliance of his majesty,
you are dressed in ignorance, and surrounded by fools.
All your coins must be left behind.
You can bring no gifts or talents.
Rather such vanities only increase the distance between you and
From his balcony, he gathers his beggars.
He will give you clear instructions on how to enter his realm.
You must wait to become what he knows you have been created
You will be sent back to your world, and it may seem like you are
living in exile.
The separation may appear to be long and hard.
Some of your neighbours will think you are mad: they will even
deny the existence of such a King.
But the King will always be closer to you than you can possibly
And you, the King’s beggar, will finally offer him the only things
you can: your helplessness, your need, and your pleas for
When you fall in love with a King, he will show you how to love
He will, himself, bring you into his palace.
He will keep his promises.
You will have him as your dearest companion, for all eternity.
