About the Poem
How can you know what will happen in the future when you tell someone goodbye?
Is It Too Late?
|by Lara Gerard|
|So many times I thought of that day,
When you held my hand
And I walked away.
The pain in your eyes burned through me then
When I close my eyes now, I see it again.
A love so young, so unbridled and raw
Being trapped and confused was all that I saw
How could I know what I feel today
When I closed the door on your heart
And walked away?
Years went by and we both moved along
While part of my heart was still singing your song.
Then I saw you again
And now I can see
The same eyes, the same heart
Looking right back at me.
You hold me so close, I’m afraid to let go.
To lose you again? How do I know?
But here you are now,
And you’re with someone new
Does she hold you and kiss you
And feel like I do?
Faced with the options
You know you must choose
Will it work with us this time
Or, will we lose?
Is it all about timing?
Or all about fate?
Or is it too late?
