From 'Dear Me' to Dear You :)

All our frantic 'Dear me-ing' cannot make 'them' see what life insists on teaching in its own time...

I cannot force into your head
The lessons I have learned
But must wait patiently instead
While your insight is earned

I cannot make you understand
Until perhaps you've worn
The sweat and tear, the prayer-clasped hand
Heart-strings, stretched, tattered, torn 

I cannot force with force, wisdom
Time's daily no return
Comes from the Hand of He who loves
And keeps us as we learn
