It may be late, but not too much

It may be late, but not too much
To ask forgiveness for your sin.
It may not heal the wound, but still
Prevent infection setting in.

It may be late, but not too much
To fight for what your love had earned.
It may not bring it back, but still
It’s good to have your spine returned.

It may be late, but not too much
To give away your excess hoard.
It may not purchase peace, but still
A night of sleep it may afford.

It may be late, but not too much
To be yourself before someone.
It may not burn your mask, but still
The tan will prove you faced the sun.

It may be late, but not too much
To love despite the chances lost.
It may not fill your life, but still
The holes will lose their years of frost.
