Holding Patience

Patience waits for no one,
Perhaps the most impatient of all,
The greatest virtue,
With the smallest concern for self,
I hold patience,
Anxiously squirming around in my arms,
For you,
We wait,
As the tardy bell of reality rings,
But still we wait,
I hold patience for you,
But your impatience,
is patient,
Waiting for me,
While we wait for you,
You hold impatience,
I hold patience,
And we, 
Never see each other.
