: I Was Too Late

17-07-2002, 10:48 AM
I grew wings on my back to see you be
I flew above to watch over you
I touched your life
I drew a smile upon your lips
But I am sorry if I were too late
I know I should have been there before
I know I should be your angel forever more
But I just had to withdraw
I had to slip out of your life
And watch you go
I know the tears are filling my eyes
I know the smile died upon my face
I know it is too hard
But I had to go away
I was too late

I came in without knocking on the door
You were waiting with a despaired stare
You jumped up
You welcomed me
My emergence was sudden
But I had to stick with you
I had to hold your hand
To guide you to the way
But although I tried so hard
I was too late

Things got out of hand
I tried to hold on
I tried to guide you safely through the night
I wanted you to witness the light of day
I wanted you to fly away
To soar into a radiance in the distance
To wash off your sins
To be the person you had to be
But I was too young
And you were too lonely
And despite all the will
I was too late

The damage has already been done
Your ship has been raided
The wreck sunk into the ocean
And waves had washed off the hope
And that is when I appeared
As a life boat sailing through your years
I threw the bait
You hung on to it
I thought it was the right thing to do
But the bait deceived us both
And you misread the signs
And that is when I figured out
I was too late

And now I am gone
And though you cried
And though you begged
And though you called me your angel
I had to go
For I couldnt help you live
And I know I cant see you die
I am sorry
But I am too late

I slipped slowly
And left you alone
I couldnt see you fall any further
I couldnt observe your collapse
I could only stand at a distance
And let a veil descend between us
And shed my tears
