Too late

What should you do when it's too late?

Should you hold on until love breaks?

Should you hold on until you bend,

Until it's too late to even mend?

What should you say when love leaves home?

Should you wave and say "so long"

Should you hold on to a tethered love

That has been doomed by the skies above?

What should we say when children ask

"What now is gone, could we ever get back?"

Should we smile and say "c'est la vie,

What is gone was never meant to be."

What should we write at the end of our book?

What started with a loving look

If we knew how things would end

We probably would have never begun.
