Often is Not Always

Often, I will put my book down,
take a drink,
look out my kitchen window,
and wonder at how lucky I have been.
I will marvel at the women in my life
and their genuine love of me.
I will pause again, take another drink,
and wonder why often is not always.
Another drink, and I pick up the book
beginning where I left off
just moments before.

Reading is the same for me, I suppose.
