Patience – 20th Word in the "Good Word" Project. (Poem)

Updated on May 25, 2020

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.

I drew this in 1986, from a picture my cousin had of my 95 year old grandmother. I drew it on a canvas to paint with oils. Before I began to paint I took a picture of it and I am so glad I did. I ruined the drawing while trying to mix the paint.

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.

Patience

by Shyron Shenko © 6/14/2014

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


Rest
in Peace Grandma "Mammaw"

I will always love you!___Shyron, or as you sometimes called me Sirene.

This is the picture I used to do the drawing of my grandmother in the hub "If you go swim in the Blue Hole and drown"
