Time and Patience

If Time were a one-way street
   Patience is what you'd need
      To be content where ever you went,
   Traveling at any speed;

If Patience were a sprout new sprung
   Right after it was sown,
      Time is the dear necesisty
   It must have to be full grown;

If Patience were the feet and hands
   And a ladder could be Time,
      Eachother will work and play its part
   Making possible the climb;

If Time would be a river
   Flowing constant from its source,
      Patience would be the paddles
   Navigating the boat's course;

Time and Patience, they are conjoined,
   Closely related things:
      One is the fabric, through which all lives
   The other describes how it hangs.
