    Too Little, Too Late


    deep conversations we would
    engage in til the sun would come up
    nothin in particular just sharin
    gossip that each had heard
    many times she would ask me
    "if i was yours, would you
    treat me that way?" but i would
    pay it no mind and just pass
    it off as a hypothetical question

    she and i was two of a kind
    i've never met anyone who shared
    in all my beliefs and opinions
    people would ask us all the time
    if we were a couple but
    i would always say, "we're only friends"
    i remember it like it was yesterday
    she would always give me this
    half smile everytime i answered the
    question with that response

    i never really thought about
    the thing she would say to me
    or her reactions to me answering
    the question the way i did
    now as i stand here dressed all
    in my tux and she in her white dress
    these thoughts began to flood my mind
    as she grabs my arm and i began to
    walk her down aisle
    it hits me like a ton of bricks

    that question she would ask
    wasnt so hypothetical after all
    she was trying to give me
    clues but i refused to pick them up
    grief weighs in on my heart as
    we finally make it down the aisle
    a small tear falls down my face
    as i give the woman of my dreams
    hand to another man in marriage!!!!!!!!!!
