Love is patient, you are slow

Love is patient.

Love is patient.

Love is patient and that is a good thing, my love,

because you

Are slow.


I loved you when you had zits and braces,

And I will love you wrinkled and gray.

Your face isn't what I love you for,

but it would be nice if you would show

Show up, show your face

Instead you make me wait.


Love, you are late

A few years.

I told you where I was.

I've been here

Loving patient, loving slow

Loving from a distance.

Getting old.


I made my love known

To you

And you reciprocated

But you are slow and love is patient,

So I have waited.


Please come soon

With not another "on my way"

No more "not now"

Come as you are

Love, be here
