Five Minutes

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Five Minutes

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 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 a while.

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 heaven’s beautiful things.

So wait for me in heaven, Dad.

Don’t let me come alone.

The day the angels come for me,

Please be there to bring me home.
