Too Late, Too Soon

Love grows passionately like a Spring flower

With it brings fresh memories of you

My heart thumps along to the sound of a rain shower

It washes away my lingering confidence

 

Too late, when I realized my mistake

Too late, when I finally chose to listen

Too late, when I closed my heart

I was too late to recognize love changing into insecurities

As I grew closer to you old scars tear open

 

In our love story, you’re the antagonist

You stole me away along with my self-confidence and esteem

A thief that nurtured my insecurities

A villain after far more than my heart

How could I be controlled like that?

 

Too late, when I realized my mistake

Too late, when I finally chose to listen

Too late, when I closed my heart

I was too late to recognized love changing into insecurities

As I grew closer to you old scars tear open

 

I love you so much, but that’s why it hurts so much

My insecurities around you built a wall

Around my heart and shielded my eyes

Finally, I realized my mistake looking into the mirror–

The true agonizer wasn’t you–it was me

 

Too soon, you realized my mistake

Too soon, you finally chose to listen

Too soon, you tried to open my heart

I was too late to recognize that your love was protecting me

From my insecurities

As I grow closer to you old scars mend
