Am I Too Late To Profess? - Poem by Obed dela Cruz
Lassie, sorry for not noticing you before
When you and I were around in the same places.
How I wish now that I created and did store
More memories when you displayed your sweet graces.
You were aware that I was looking someplace else-
Actually thinking about another girl
When I lied to you that I was free from her spells
Yet still yearned for romance between us to unfurl.
I liked you but my heart was unwisely hopeful,
Locked, and reserved for more than five years of trying
To be loved, received, and entertained like a fool
Who found second best as worthy of my settling!
Please know that I was wrong. Today, I am open.
In fact, you've been and are in my thoughts for weeks now;
Crafting reasons and praying to meet you again,
To test if the two of us our Lord would allow
To become one eventually in His will;
Yes-only if it's His perfect intention
Because other plans may turn us weary and ill,
Cursing to rancor ev'ry infatuation.
Forgive me if I thought you're easy to let go
And pardon me for not valuing you enough.
Help me see any form of mercy you would show
Because I just came from a long road that is rough.
You were a friend I ignored and rarely talked to,
And I'm not even sure if you'd at least like me.
But I am still hoping to learn more about you.
Am I too late to profess? Would our hearts agree?
P.S. Wishing that you are not yet "taken."
