Memorial Poem | Five Minutes – By Annmarie Campbell

Five Minutes
(Grief Loss Poem)

If I only had five minutes
the day you passed away ..
I would’ve 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
than anyone 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 day you passed away ..

I’d hold on to you with real tight hugs
I wouldn’t want you to go ..
I would 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.
