It Takes Time

It Takes Time
By Marlene Depler

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, and 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—
only time.
(c) Marlene Depler
