Patience – 20th Word in the "Good Word" Project. (Poem)
Creation of the 'Good Word' project
The "Good Word" Project, was created by Jo_Goldsmith11, to help her/our fellow Hubbers practice words of encouragement and inspiration, to promote good will and to bring recognition to unknown writers on this site.
When Jo first told me about this project, I told her I would write a poem for each "Good Word" she gave us each week. I am a little behind, but you will see I will keep that Promise.
20th Good Word
Patience, is the 20th "Good Word," in this project. Be patient with me as I continue to write a poem for each 'Good Word' given to us each week, by fellow hubber Jo_Goldsmith11. Thank you Jo for these 'Good Words' for guidance and inspiration.
This is Patience to me.
When I think of patience, I can only think of my grandmother "Mammaw" who had more patience than anyone can imagine.
My Mammaw raised five children, six grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

I have been told so many times patience is a virtue
By someone who had the patience of a saint
Her endurance was tested all the time
By the most impatient children’s whine
She had the fortitude to see us through
The roughest times
As she taught us to be patient
And soothed each petty little whine
If patience could describe someone
I know just who it would be
Someone who loved her Lord and Savior
And taught us all to love Him same as she
If you could measure patience
I am sure that you would see
Patience would reach all the way to Heaven
That is where my Grandma will be
If awards were given out for patience
My Grandma would have won a prize for every year
For ever heartache she suffered
For every single tear
For each and every one of us
I know that she has cried
Until patience brought her peace
When each tragedy would subside
I know she will be compensated
For every single tear she shed
For the patience she has shown
With every word she said
Patience really is a virtue
To this I can attest
Because my grandma Etta
Had the most patience, she was the very best
in Peace Grandma "Mammaw"
I will always love you!___Shyron, or as you sometimes called me Sirene.
