On the heavens with the designers
Away from the haphazard maze
We sometimes call earth.
Ah, "basement"? That is less artful,
Take me to your roof then,
And we'll watch the stars and glitter.
I'll take you to the skies
Up these steps ever so slowly.
It's quieter here, and you wonder -
If this is really heaven,
Why are there so few of us?
Glitzy handbags, bright halo rings
Perhaps only angels could afford heaven.
I may not really know why
But at least I have you
Here, by my side.
"Will you come to tea?" I asked.
"Here?" your eyes widened,
"In the middle out of nowhere?"
Yes here, with you. With me.
You love everything sweet,
You say that's why you are.
But your drink you disapproved
Heaven's "Fresh Strawberry Shake" -
They even call it fluffy! -
More like drinking from the clouds,
Light, with too small a tinge of sweetness.
One thing I had glowed -
The "Apricot and Blueberry Crumble",
I closed my eyes at the first spoonful.
"I'm in love", I smiled.
"Then you don't need a girlfriend",
She retorted in between a smile.
I smiled, then tucked back into heaven.
You did find your own little heaven,
A poetic slice of cake indeed.
"Vanilla Chiffon" so it went,
With thyme and lime, what a rhyme.
Then it was quiet for a while,
Only spoons and plates in a symphony -
I could tell, you like your cake.
Pleasant moments of sweetness
Make good afternoons.
As we walked away,
Away from this little spot of heaven
We saw a baby smile and laugh -
His first taste of cake.
We know how it feels.
