Is It Too Late?

So many times I thought of that day,
When you held my hand
And I walked away.

The pain in your eyes burned through me then
When I close my eyes now, I see it again.

A love so young, so unbridled and raw
Being trapped and confused was all that I saw

How could I know what I feel today
When I closed the door on your heart
And walked away?

Years went by and we both moved along
While part of my heart was still singing your song.

Then I saw you again
And now I can see
The same eyes, the same heart
Looking right back at me.

You hold me so close, Iím afraid to let go.
To lose you again? How do I know?

But here you are now,
And youíre with someone new
Does she hold you and kiss you
And feel like I do?

Faced with the options
You know you must choose
Will it work with us this time
Or, will we lose?

Is it all about timing?
Or all about fate?
Together again?
Or is it too late?

I really enjoyed your poem it made me think of the day that me and my boyfriend broke up and it felt like there was no hope left and then we got back togethere, if you guys dont get back together then i know that there is someone special out there for you. Nice writting on your poem, it was very touching.
Debra
This is really a wonderful and touching poem. I read it and wanted to send it to my ex-boyfriend, Terry who actually also wants to get back with me. We broke up a year ago. He has been trying to win my heart since but sadly I had to let him go again as he has someone new now and I don't want to be the couse of the break-up. I still love him deeply and badly want him back in my life but because he has someone new, I sacrifice my love for him so that she can have him full. Terry thinks that I don't love him anymore, now he dosen't want to talk to me again..I guess I have no choise but to let him think that way.but if he only knew..

I was looking for a poem to sent to my first boyfriend. we broke up because he moved. He's had other girlfriend , I've had other boyfriends but we still love each other I sent him this poem and he told me that now that he knows that i love him he is moving back. But now I dont know if its going to be the same because I have a great boyfriend and I really dont know what todo so i'm going to look for another poem to make me find what to do.
