5 MinutesFor five minutes the other day I was a first time father
All the joys and agonies of a young new life weighed upon my shoulders
For 5 minutes I could behold the future and it looked bright
All the things I would teach them, the wisdom I would pass along
Boy or girl, it did not matter, I would be happy with whatever the fates chose to bless me with
Little baby 1 cm long visible on the ultrasound screen.
I had so many plans for you, even though the world it be a scary place,
But for you I would tread the dangerous waters to make it what more safe I can.
For five minutes I was the happiest man I had ever been.
It seemed like 5 minutes anyways, all the thoughts that passed through my head.
In reality it couldn't have been much over 30 seconds, before the ultrasound technician said
"Hmm that's odd, your baby has no heart beat"
