Patience


I was the winter coat
Smooth scarf around your neck
The hot chocolate in a blizzard
That warmed your stomach
But in the season of need
You cast these things away
Thinking they're so easily replaced
Danced in the freezing rain
A tin man now rusting
Always someone by your side
Never ask for your help
When you give it I
See regret in your eyes
A sorry is never simple
Of course that you've never gave
All see you plow my driveway
And hers and hers too but still you deceive
Does the new one even realize
They were in your bed once too
I am the least of her worries
Of course not because
you never tell the truth
Yeah I continue to be kind
Polite is now easy
But I dream of the day I can move
And leave behind everything
Until then God strengthens
Provides at every turn
Using each new situation
As another way to learn

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
