Too Late Poem by Jennifer Birchall

Too Late

Rating: 5.0


I was told you were gone
I didn't want to believe it
I wasn't ready yet
I had to see you

I came to see you
You were there, on your chair
But you were gone

I didn't get to say I love you
I hope you knew
I didn't get to tell you I was proud of you
I hope you knew
I didn't get to hug you one last time

I was going to do all of that on the Sunday
It was too late
I left it too late, I'm sorry

We are always late, to express our feelings, to spend our love to the persons who might be waiting for that feeling, a beautiful poem on love and regret.
