I watched you and hoped you would talk to me,
even if it was just a few words,
asking my opinion or thanking me for
something good that happened in your life yesterday -
but I noticed you
were to busy
trying to find the right outfit to put on
and wear to work.
I waited again.
When you ran around the house getting ready
I knew there
would be a few minutes for you to stop and say hello,
but you were too busy.
At one point you had to wait fifteen minutes
with nothing to do except sit
in a chair.
Then I saw you spring to your feet.
I thought you wanted to
talk to me
but you ran to the phone and called a friend
to get the latest
I watched as you went to work
and I waited patiently all day long.
With all your activities
I guess you were too busy
to say anything to me.
noticed that before lunch
you looked around,
maybe you felt embarrassed to
talk to me,
that is why you didn't bow your head.
You glanced three or
four tables over
and you noticed some of your friends
talking to me briefly
before they ate, but you didn't.
That's okay. There is still more time left,
and I have hope that you will
talk to me...
yet you went home
and it seems as if you had
lots of things to do.
After a few of them were done you turned on the TV,
I don't know if you
like TV or not,
just about anything goes there
and you spent a lot of time
in front of it,
not thinking about anything -
just enjoying the show.
I waited patiently again
as you watched the TV and ate your meal...
you didn't talk to me.
Bedtime - I guess you felt too tired.
After you said
goodnight to your family
you plopped into bed and fell asleep in no time.
because you may not realize
that I am always there for you.
I've got patience
more than you will ever know.
I even want to teach you
how to be patient with others as well.
I love you so much
that I wait
everyday for a nod,
prayer or thought or a thankful part of your heart.
It is hard to have a one-sided conversation.
Well you are getting up again and once again I will wait with nothing but
love for you hoping that today you will give me some time.
Have a nice day!
P.S. Do you have enough time to send this to another person?
