Far Too Late

Where were you when I was crying?

Where were you when I felt like dying?

You didn't help me stand.

You wouldn't lend me your hand.

You just sat and stared.

I never found out if you cared.

And now that you're gone,

I question what I did wrong.

When you looked at me.

What did you see?

Did you see your lies,

Dressed with mom's eyes?

Did I remind you of your mistakes,

As you drank away the aches?

Now that you have disappeared,

The haze over my life has cleared.

Now that I am thinking straight,

I know your apology came far too late.
