Maybe I’ll Wait

I love it when it rains
a reminder
the waters that depart
will find its way
back to us

I like it when its cold
for I can clothe myself
heavily
like an overly decorated
christmas tree

I am fine with waiting
I had practice
I am patient
my legs will shake
my heart’s under water
but I will wait
because I’m fine with waiting

Sometimes I long for warmth
the sunlight touches my skin
and then these beads of sweat
start to part from me, I can feel
I can’t bring them back
how refreshing!

Often, I look by my window
to catch a glimpse of the sun
its grand beauty, its majesty
it is a lonely star

and here I am waiting
so long
that I’ve befriended
the dinosaurs that have long been gone
maybe I’ll wait
for I know not
what shall come tomorrow
