A Little Too Late

A Little Too Late

 

 

 

Today I bought you flowers for the first time ever

 

Today I got down on my knees and told you I would love you forever

 

Today I knew we would never have another fight

 

Today I prayed for God to help me walk in His Light

 

Today I vowed I would never have another drink and God knows I meant it

 

Today I chose to gaze at your beautiful face instead of the television

 

Today I learned you cannot go back and fix the mistakes of the past

 

Today I learned of both a love and pain that will forever last

 

Today I found out what really being sorry is all about

 

Today I found that with you I would have to do without

 

Yes all these things I learned in just one day

 

Lessons that really came at too high a price for anyone to have to pay

 

Because last night you begged me not to get behind the wheel

 

But I let alcohol take over and it helped me kill

 

My inner battle with rage spilled over and I made you get in with me

 

It wasn't the first time; but the last time it will be

 

Today my penance began for the wrongs I committed against you

 

For last night I lost the only one in my life that was pure and true

 

Just yesterday I was blind and could not see

 

Now I see through pain much too clearly

 

Last night I didn't even get to say goodbye

 

And that can't be changed no matter how much I cry

 

Today I could only say goodbye to a cold hard stone

 

Then turned and walked away with grief to bear alone

 

For today I laid you down to rest

 

God set it before me; but I failed the test

 

Yes today I learned of things both small and great

 

Only today was just a little too late
