I have patience...

It is he that makes you toss and turn

That makes you mumble

That makes you cry out

As the clock ticks

While he waits patiently in the corner

“Close your eyes” he whispers

Its time….

But you hesitate and protest

But he is patient and waits…

Tossing and turning

Moaning and groaning

 The clock ticks

You’re in pain

Your chest burns

Your heart races

Yet he whispers “close your eyes”

You scream “not yet! not yet!”

but he leans over and whispers once more

“we can wait”
