You Wait For Me To Wander

you are patient
you are kind
never rude
and I’m a gnat
that keeps going
round and round
with one swat
you can squash me away
but you don’t
you won’t
you are patient
you are kind
and wait
for me to wander
thank you
you know
that I will
and I know
my attention will shift
I don’t know when
I don’t know how
but it will
it always does
but not quite yet
my heart still sings
when it hears your name
or sees your face
you are patient
you are kind
but for how long
I don’t know
but I know
I am not ready
for the
end, yet.
