Please Don't Keep Me Waiting

Time is money, some folks say
But I say time is Life;
And when you keep me waiting
Besides adding to my strife.

You're stealing from me
My time, my plans, my day;
How would you feel you tardy one
If I treated you this way?

It's uncalled for, selfish and rude
This wasting of my time;
Why not hold me up with a gun?
Could that be more of a crime?

So ponder this matter over, please
And try to comprehend;
My time is as important to me
As yours is to you my friend.
