Minute (poem)

What would your last words be
If you had one minute left to live
Would you spill a long-held secret
Or finally forgiveness give
Would you plead to Almighty God
To have mercy on your soul
Or would you whisper to the one you love
In the last tender moment you stole
So much can be said in 60 seconds
To ease the mind or heal the heart
Or that minute can destroy a life
Tear them up and break them apart
One minute can change a life
Whether it’s your first or your last
No matter what you do, once it’s gone
You can never get it back
Use your minutes wisely
Every second that you can
Before you know it your next minute
May be the last minute that you have
