Wadau salaam, Naandika hii with a clear knowledge of the ancestors' saying that:"Patience pays." But I sat back and thought...how long should you wait? I just lost her...and may be I may not have her again...but seriously doesnt patience have its limits??! It happened three years ago in college, We met-I as a senior student and her a new student-and became great friends. I used to help her in studies, life and we just hanged around together. As a result I fell in love with her...She never realized it, because anyway i neva told her! I believed in patience, and so I kept my piece acting like the normal good friend she has always known. Just before I completed school she got a boyfriend. Some guy she just knew for two weeks and voila..they were in a relationship. She came to me as a friend asking for ideas. That she just liked him but she is trying to see if it might work. I told her to do what she felt was right. In my heart I was hurting a lot.. I still believed in patience. I thought she will come to realize how much I love her. She always used to tell me "I love you"..and I never understood that kind of love she was talking about. Anyway, it is three years now..I am ready to let her know what I feel about her and I still remember the words of our ancestors; "Love is Patience". For how long then? Until when I hear they are getting married? I am a bit confused...Does patience have limits? What should someone be doing to the person they love during the waiting time..so that they don't end up loosing them?
