Too Late For Us

A wish,
a dream,
a sigh…
teardrops falling
from my eyes.
Was it yesterday,
or today,
when first I realized,
a yearning,
a heart,
a sob,
a cry…
Too late for us,
to soon to start again,
so fast,
so fast,
the tears
rain from my eyes.

W. James Beard, Jr.

Lovely - sweet and sad - woeful.
Well written, JWesley.

Awwhh...
I know too well how it feels when your dreams are dashed...
Lovely words to express heart pulling emotions...
