I Don’t Want to Lose Patience


Patience Allows Us to Live Life With Tranquility

Patience is a valuable skill to practice to live a happy and tranquil life. There are moments in our lives when we find it difficult to be patient. It can be the loss of something important, or maybe a loss of a loved one. Sometimes things are beyond our control, and we strive very hard not to lose patience. At times it can be a very challenging situation, but practicing patience is the only best option available.

It is always good to make an effort to achieve our goals and then leave the rest up to God. I believe God hears us, He understands our pain.  He always answers the prayers. He loves those who trust Him and His plans.

Practicing patience requires slowing down, focusing on the present, and living it mindfully. Maintaining security and tranquility, knowing that there will be a future, as long as we accompany it with healthy practices and good attitudes. Letting things flow doesn’t mean “sitting and watching life go by”. It just means you trust Him well.

In Quran, Allah (God) says ” “Indeed, Allah is with those who are patient ”  Surah Al-Baqarah [2:153]

As Believers, we must trust that the Lord will never let us fail and that everything that happens will be for our good. No matter how difficult the situation is, believing him and being patient will never let us down. However, there are times when we hope not to lose our patience, and the poem below expresses the emotion of someone who is waiting for a loved one, and in that period of waiting, she asks God for help because she does not want to lose hope and patience.

I Don’t Want to Lose Patience ~ a Poem


The heart bleeds,

Tears fill up in my eyes,

Lips trembling,

Hear my sigh!

I don’t want to lose my patience…


You aren’t around…

I look but can’t find

Heart weeps and speaks,

Come on, I am tired.

I’m trying not to lose my patience…


The days are passing.

Nights spent, hugging the pillow.

Ask my pillow, which has soaked up my tears.

Please return soon.

I don’t want to lose patience…



The doors are closed.

I can’t find him around

Oh, God, hear my sigh!

Heal these wounds.

I don’t want to be impatient…


Sleepless nights,

Morning headaches,

I’m feeling down.

Drowning in an ocean of my tears.

Please, I need you around…


Hear my sigh!

Most silent yet loudest cry,

Please don’t ignore it.

I don’t want to lose patience…
