Patience is a fine virtue sought by many Many fortunes were made starting with a penny While in the Army I had to hurry up and wait Many have had to wait for the right mate All of our days are filled with waiting times We wait while the cashier counts the dimes There is no reason to get in a rush We all have to wait, why make a fuss A wise old man once said to me Time goes by fast just wait and see Before you know it you will be old and gray Enjoy your youth, have fun and play I know I can't control the times and seasons Waiting times happen for many reasons Wisdom comes from waiting on things The wait is worth the prize it brings Patience and endurance goes hand in hand The long wait is over, strike up the band It takes time to grow a large tree But it is worth the wait its' beauty to see Copyright 2005 Irvin L.
