too late, she comprehended

for she knew the time had passed
the moments while parading
saw the finish line at last
 
too late, she understood then
she had cause to hesitate
too late
for at this time and date
too early
to create
 
too late, she uttered meekly
with a sigh of soft regret
for shadows will catch up to you
before the sun has set
 
too late, she saw the future
and she realized her fate
too late
for at this time and date
too early
to create
 
too late, she stops to slow down
and to ponder what's been done
to run her finger back along
the course that now's been run
 
too late, her path was winding
but the path ahead is straight
too late
for at this time and date
too early
to create
