It Takes Time
My precious child, be patient with your dreams.
Stop rushing ahead and pushing so hard.
Things of great value and quality take time;
good bread, great cheese, fine wine.
Think how long diamonds are in the making!
Weavers weave, thread by thread;
painters paint, stroke by stroke;
builders build, brick upon brick.
I am preparing you for what lies ahead.
I will give you all you need.
Be patient while I shape you.
Do not give up on your dream.
Rose buds need no force to blossom,
~ Marlene Depler
