Better late than never
does not always apply
since one word out of place
can make a lonely heart cry.

Time is of the essence
and emotion a fickle thing
but a heart that isn’t broken
is one that never sings.

Patience waits it out
for love and for hope
but virtues rarely last
when it’s harder still to cope.
