Too Late - Poem by Danielle Deery

I’ve tried so hard to understand,
Why I’ve been dealt a failing hand
I’m doing everything to hear you say
You’re my baby girl, honey, please stay.

I really did believe in you,
But that I thought you already knew.
It’s a shame that you just couldn’t see
How perfect me and you could be.

Loving isn’t simple you know.
I’d promised you I’d never let go
But then you let the hurting in.
Then you let the pain begin.

I’ve told you once to open your eyes
To look around and forget all the lies.
Darling, wonderful is what you are
As magnificent as a shining star.

Now as our devastating end draws near,
Throw away the pain and fear.
For all I want to see is you
This is the last thing I ask you to do.

Dearest husband, please, don’t give up.
I know we barely drank from the cup.
Time is gone; it’s left us behind,
At least you’ll still see us there in your mind.

Love is tough, and we’ve had too much.
It’s strange how gentle you seemed to touch.
It’s heartbreaking, I know, for now I must go.
An ending so brutal, as my blood does flow.

As you sobbed like a child, a heart wrenching cry,
Knowing now that they’d left me to die.
My last few words were honest and true,
Sweetheart, I have always loved you.
