* PATIENCE IS VIRTUE


From a first time DAD and MOM to their first born child SEAN

Patience is a virtue
I read this line from
Benjamin Franklin's autobiography
a decade ago

I t was only yesterday
I had applied the patience applicability
in a practicable way

Being a first time Dad
Patience is indeed a virtue
Patience teaches me
to hold temper
when my first born cries
breaking the silent dawn

Patience draws sacrifices
when i prepare formula (nan h.w. one) milk
before waking -up morn

and it is through patience
my wife was be able to deliver
our first born via natural birth
