... if you run after it, it will only fly away. But if you are patient and wait it will come and land on your shoulder.
I remember the waiting days. Days of swearing contentment of bliss until I was thirty, and then days of distress and constant prayers.
Whenever you are waiting for something, is seems much longer in coming than it actually is.
And you are in danger of thinking it more important than it should be.
Or that it's arrival will be the end of your waiting.
Wait (verb [intrans.]) 1. stay where one is or delay action until a particular time or until something else happens 2. remain in readiness for some purpose
So, wait for it. Wait for love. Don't grow impatient. Don't grow hasty. It's much too important to rush.
Remain ready for the purpose, but do not let it consume you.
Love is like a butterfly, if you run after it, it will only fly away. But if you are patient and wait it will come and land on your shoulder.
