Heaven Can Wait

The monsoon sky speaks to me
Through its dusky, silky veil
I can hear its distant whispers
And I say, heaven can wait

The rumbling roar is near at hand
The zephyr transforms to a storm
Darkness descends at noon
And I say, heaven can wait

The sheets of rain pour forth
Dancing merrily on tiled roofs
The melodies blend with the percussion
And I say, heaven can wait

The downpour slows to a drizzle
As the puddles reach out to my toes
I playfully dip my ankles
And I say, heaven can wait

When the heavens come pouring down
I seek not refuge, nor shelter
I seek not the comfort of the heavens
And I simply cannot wait
