Too Late

Rays Of Wisdom - Words Of Wisdom For Friendship Healing - Too Late

What silences we keep, year after year
With those who are most near to us and so dear.
Living beside each other day by day,
We speak of myriads of things, yet seldom say
The sweet loving words that are within everyone’s reach
Beneath the common ground of ordinary speech.

When out of sight and reach they go,
These close familiar ones who loved us so,
We sit in the vacuum and the shadows they have left,
With feelings of loneliness and sore bereft.
In vain we then think of fond words
We might have said and they’d have heard.

Until the vision of our true nature awakens,
An inevitable part of the cross of earthly life
Is that we can only grasp such things when death has
Taken our loved ones away and the place
Of their beloved presence is now empty space.
No recollections and memories can then
Console us for that which might have been –
If only we had known better.
