As used in canon:

   He's late. CK

On startrek.klingon (Jan. 1998), Okrand provided three ways to translate "I 
was too late to visit you":

   jIpaSqu'mo' narghpu' qaSuchmeH 'eb.
   Because I'm very late, the opportunity to visit you has escaped.

   qaSuch vIneH 'ach narghpu' 'eb.  jIpaSqu'.
   I want to visit you, but the opportunity has escaped. I am very late.

   qaSuchlaHbe'.  jIpaSqu' vaj narghpu' 'eb.
   I cannot visit you. I am very late, thus the opportunity has escaped.

Voragh                            "Damage control is easy. Reading 
Ca'Non Master of the Klingons      hard!"         (Montgomery Scott to 
Kirk, STIV)
