patient

 patience is useful, all the time,
 but very hard to practice,
 because it takes both letting go,
 and keeping on, at once.

 this isn't a thing we do that well:
 we lean more towards complaining,
 not dealing with the minutes that
 can soon turn into months --

 but patience is something we like a lot
 when others have it for us:
 and so, by love's great symmetry,
 we should return, as well,

 the time and space it takes, some days,
 or years, for things to happen:
 to feel the magic, even, when
 we sit and wait

 a spell
