Oh, how I wish that I could sleep,
But there is too much on my mind.
Too many questions without answers,
No easy road that I might find.

See, patience is a tricky beast,
You might think you have her tamed.
But then she breaks away, leaves your side,
And you’re alone and betrayed.

So what do I do?
Where do I go?
Who do I trust?
Which path do I follow?

Is there trust enough to love,
To wash away the sorrow?
If I find patience once again,
Will she still be here tomorrow?

I think I might just be too stupid,
Or too naive for my own good.
I could shut off all emotions,
And not trust others like I should.

But in the end it is not wise,
To leave my heart, by fear subdued.
I will live in every moment.
And love the people that I do.
