God I'm trying to think,
It seems the older I get.
The more I must sleep.
This cough that I have,
Has gone on for weeks.

Even my body
starts to feel weak.
To ask the question,
May seem a little bold.
Does our king also suffer,
From the common cold.

Think I'll stop writing,
Close my weary eyes.
No wish to hear sounds.
Not even a peep, After all
I never have had 12hrs sleep.
