Five More Minutes

The elderly man’s final strength turns to run

His long, full life now enters its final sunset

Recalling the good times, craving a bit more

“Five more minutes” before the setting sun

 

Swapping one more story, with my dear Dad

His role in life, serving as my own launch pad

 

Listening to Neil Diamond, singing one more song

He conveys my love for “America”—forever strong

 

Taking extra time to say, “I sincerely apologize”

For actions which turned out bad, not very wise

 

Please God, just five more minutes . . .

 

Fishing the Madison River, time for one more cast

Herb standing ready, with a memory from the past

 

Experiencing one more awe-inspiring sunrise

One only God can create, His lasting surprise

 

Sharing a moment, with a special great-grandchild

Before falling back to sleep, she winks and smiles

 

Please God, just five more minutes . . .

 

Witnessing fresh, fallen snow—pristine white

Pine trees show off under moon’s bright light

 

Stepping into a high school classroom once more

Taking notes from the elite of the teaching corps

 

Witnessing a Big Montana Sky, fetches a smile

Please allow me to see, at least one more mile

 

Please God, just five more minutes . . .

 

Traveling to a place, never seen before

Anxious to view, what’s really in store?

 

Sharing with my bride, “I love you” one more time

Enduring heartbeats and affection, forever rhyme

 

Asking my Heavenly Father, for forgiveness

My risen Lord and Savior, being my witness

 

Thank you God for these five more minutes!

Take Time Today

From Genesis 1:30-31:  “[God said] ‘And to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.’  And it was so.  God saw everything that He had made, and indeed, it was very good.  And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.”

Kneeling before Christ

Never think twice
