Old father time,
My friend and my foe,
You harbor life’s secrets,
Only things that you know.
~
You pass by me quickly,
When times are so grand,
But when I am waiting,
You linger and stand.
~
You cannot be pushed,
Nor grabbed and delayed,
You pass at your pace,
So steady and staid.
~
Impatience will slow you,
Acceptance will speed,
In the fullness of you,
We get answers we need.
