Five Minutes
(In Loving Memory Poems)

If I only had five minutes
the day you passed away ..
I would have had time to tell you
all the things I needed to say.

I never got to tell you
how much you mean to me ..
Or that you were the best dad
better than any man could be.

The last time that I talked to you
I wish I would have known ..
I would have said I love you
and kept you on the phone.

If I only had five minutes
the morning you passed away
I’d give you one last hug so tight
and see your great big smile ..
I’d tell you that I don’t think
I could live without you ..
.. not even for awhile.

I’d kiss your cheek and take your hand
and tell you it’s okay to go ..
And tell you that I’ll miss you
more than you’ll ever know.

But you were gone so quickly
One last car ride you’d take ..
Before you even knew it
you were standing at heaven’s gate.

Now God has called upon you
It’s time to get your wings ..
To leave this life behind you
And enjoy all of heavens beautiful things.

So wait for me in heaven
Don’t let me come alone ..
The day the angels come for me
Please be there to bring me home.
