If I could give you the strength to walk by yourself, I'd do
this in less than a minute.
If I could eliminate all 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 days, I'd do so 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 share just one more day, to remind you how very important you are, I'd do this in less than a second.
If I could turn back the time and lengthen your days, I'd do this in less than a minute.
If there was any possible way that I could have made you more comfortable and kept you from dying, I would done this in less than a second.
Now you're gone, but my memories hold on. Everything I have and all I'll remember, I'll frame each wonderful reason I loved you. I will cherish all those minutes and seconds. Grandma, Grandpa, dad, and everyone else has helped you come home. Loneliness will be filled with your loved ones.
You were an Angel on Earth and now a Guardian Angel in Heaven. Both worlds have been blessed with your presence.
You won't have to suffer and be scared anymore. Your sadness and pain has been lifted and healed. God raised you up in his comforting hands to care for you as you lovingly needed.
"Minutes To Seconds, Days To Weeks, and Months To Years,"
We will never forget your breath-taking existence. You suffered and struggled for such a long time. Thank you for staying as long as you could. Priceless will highlight your meaning.
