Patience by WingChant

A man in gray, stoic and resolute

The picture of patience

So very, infinitely patient

As if he has all the time in the world

Ah, but I suppose he does

Standing watch over this undeserving soul

Doing naught more but drowning

But somehow always returning to the surface

A breach, a breath of fresh air on occasion

And a glimpse of the man in gray

Always in the periphery

A soft hand on a shoulder

A sturdy form to lean on

Why won’t he stand before me?
