Patience

I know there’s one, one sad soul out there

Waiting wishing, somebody, somewhere

Who cares for all the things of which I care

The answer to my one, my only prayer

Deepest love is hidden in a vulnerable and lonely place

It hides behind the things we all ignore and do not want to face

Common knowledge says it’s so, we humans are a fickle race

It makes me want to hide my heart, lock it up, just in case

I hate that it has come to this

That ignorance is somehow bliss

Ask anyone, before you kiss

Are you just one more on the list

When did we lose all our trust?

When did dawn turn into dusk?

When did love abandon us?

We need to pause and think – we must

That which we concern ourselves

Is found on vanity’s bookshelves

If only we’d prioritize

The world would change before our eyes

I know there’s one, one sad soul out there

Waiting wishing, somebody, somewhere

Carrying the same burdens that I bear

I’ll find you one day, and love the life we share
