Please be patient...
Please be patient with me I don't live fully in your world anymore.
Please be patient with me, I'm not who I was, I lost a part of me.
Please be patient with the things I do, the ways I am, the things I say that you may not understand.
When 'that day' hit our lives as a tidal wave shatters a shore, so our lives,
Please be patient with me, 'our' world has had to become 'my'
My dreams for you,
My hopes for the family
I wait patiently for companionship, your counsel, your advice, to return.
Please be patient with me,
What happened changed me.
Be patient with me, as I do not expect your understanding, your pity or your comprehension,
Patience will do.
Patience as I make sense of my world again,
As I learn how to live and breathe without what I used to have.
Please be patient as I am not always brave or wise or right,
I am vulnerable, volatile,
Often alone within this fight.
Please be patient as I lost something no one will ever truly understand.
Give me that and know it willl never be just a question of 'giving me time'.
