Running Late

It seems, I must accept my fate,
And wait -
And wait -
for the girl who's always late.

The girl packed with
that gets-up-and-goes - slow
slow, slow, slow.

Sometimes, she simply doesn't show.

A working mom,
who runs behind
tasks and troubles - big and small -
juggling the daily grind.

It's a wonder she turns up at all.

Spread too thin -
we've all been there.
Some days, a woman cannot win.

Nevertheless -
I guess to me, she's worth the wait.

She's Grrrrreat ! ! !

But she'll be running . . . late.
