If It Comes Too Late

If It Comes Too Late

If it comes too late, no matter how strong
or passionate the rain,
it will not be enough to touch the veins
of a dead flower again.
Such little drops could never peal
to assure a bloom once raised,
nor could the trifling chills compete
with the cold its petals taste.

If it comes too late, no matter how strong
or passionate the heart,
it will not be enough to prompt a deadened
love to a restart.
Such little things could not make the tired
re-tread a road too rough,
and when all is done, if it comes too late,
then love won’t be enough.

— A. P.
