Minutes to Seconds . . .


If I could give you the strength to walk by yourself,
I'd do this in less than a minute.
If I could eliminate the troubles and sadness from your heart,
I'd do this in less than a second.
If I could give you a rainbow with the most significant colors,
and something inspirational to brighten your day, I'd do this
in less than a minute.
If I could offer you hope, fulfillment, and a painless world
of complete satisfaction, I'd do this in less than a second.
If I could change your life, and have you healthy again,
I'd do this in less than a minute.
If there was anything I could do to see you happier than not,
I'd do this in less than a second.
If I could fill all the emptiness and loneliness you continually
live with, I'd do this in less than a minute.
If I had an opportunity to start over again, to tell you I'm
so very sorry for the hardships between us, I'd do this in
less than a second.
If I could turn back the clock and lengthen your days,
I would have done this in less than a minute.
If there was any possible way that I could have helped you
from dying, I would done this in less than a second. Now you
are gone, but my memories hold on. Everything I have and all
I remember, I will cherish all those minutes and seconds.
You were an Angel on Earth and now an Angel in Heaven.
Both worlds have been blessed with your presence.
