t was too late then!
When I loved you I ought to have loved you then and there!
But I dreamt a while, floated in cloud
Gathered a flower of lily or two, travelled through my own time
It was too late then;
I reached the summit
Thanked God and Moon on that full Moon Day
Cursed the chillness around in the lake,
Far away in urban jungle, far away from the maddening lights
The floating fog in the fading dusk
Washed my car comfortably
Wiped my shivering fingers off
Tucked my t shirt inside the blue jeans
Left the leather belt dangling in a hurry
No man around, no breath around
But chirping birds in the distance clouds
But forgot to check my heart for its beats
My love was deep asleep by then
By then it was too late;
Here where I failed to connect
The body and soul-the life and death
If I was alive I would have dead by now
Since not, I am immortal now
I am floating around
I see me sleeping in the car seat sitting pretty
So serene, so calm so peaceful
I ought to have loved you then and there!
With courage and conviction!
