Am I Too Late? - Poem by Eric Hunter

I’m sorry for looking past you while growing up
I’m sorry for not seeing your heart and snatching you up
I went my own way looking for something I didn’t know
I chose the wrong person that had no love to show
I’ve searched so many times down long lonely roads
And all along the one I needed was someone that I know
You waited for me for so long
The choices I made were all wrong
You always smiled and encouraged me
I took you for granted as I was too blind to see
The thing I now know I need and want is many states away
The more I come to realize it’s you the more I will try and find a way
To find you and hold you in my arms tightly
I want to kiss you goodnight and tell you I love you nightly
I want to show you I love you because you wanted to do the same
I made you wait so long that at times I feel so much shame
I hope I’m not too late to give you the love that you deserve
Please be patient with me as I work up the nerve
If you will be mine then I will be yours
I’ll love you forever, of that rest assured
Am I too late, please tell me I am not
This game of waiting has my stomach in knots
I can’t imagine how painful it must have been
To watch me walk away, perhaps to never be seen again
I promise to never leave your side for the rest of time
I believe our love is ready for its’ prime
Please tell me you still love me and want me to be yours
I want to make you the most loved woman between the Eastern and Western shores
Can we work this out for good Bethanie?
Because my future plans for you begin on bended knee
