Poem: I Want Five Minutes …a wedding blessing

Today, I’m asking you to share your life with me

But I really just want five minutes

When the alarm clock rings, I want five minutes

To remember

That you chose me

And I chose you

I want to rest my arm on you

And listen to you breathing next to me

And when I call you at lunchtime

I want five minutes

To hear your voice

To hear your laugh

For you to hear mine

And when we meet at the end of the day

I want five minutes

Without worry or complaint

Just a hug

And maybe a mug, of tea

And when we turn off the light

I want to notice

That we are side by side

That we are already here

That you chose me

And I chose you

I want five minutes

Or sometimes more
