I always asked my dad if I could have a pet
And I remember him saying, "I don't think you're ready yet"
But one day he came home and said I had to close my eyes
And so I waited patiently for my big surprise
What is it dad? A puppy, or a gerbil?
His name is Patience, and he's a baby turtle
Every night I feed him before I go to bed
And when he is done eating I pet him on the head
Patience is a happy turtle who’s never in a hurry
He knows I will take care of him so he doesn't have to worry
He may be slow but he takes time to enjoy his day
His favorite part being when I take him out to play
I know that Patience makes my life great
Cause good things always come to those who wait
