"It Takes Time"

Sometimes we have no patience
Especially when times seems quite slow
yet with our latest ice storm
many things happened we don't know.
 
Yes trees did topal, and broken limbs
caused many light poles to fall
Mother Nature ran her course
causing grief to one and all.
 
The power was cut for thousands
which is taking much time to restore
yet the linemen are working countless hours
in an effort to bring back as before.
 
These linemen are facing danger
much more than with normal repair
we must pray for the safety of all of them
and don't feel as though they don't care.
 
Yes it is a time we can help everyone
with whatever seems their need
you can help restore their patience
by giving water; clothing and feed.
