Thomas J. Dooley


5 Minutes -

As 22 years of life flashes by

No time to celebrate the new life


Life can be full with broken promises

Is forgiveness one of them


5 Minutes -

As a mother wonders why

Why doesn't the tears bring back life

To live is everyone's right

No one should choose to die

5 Minutes -

No time for quick decisions

No choice but to blame the victim

Could we forgive this

Should we forgive this

5 Minutes - 

No time to plan for the next day

No time to prepare to pass away

Is there words for healing 

What are the words we are needing

5 Minutes -

Alone in the dark

As the pain burns through the heart
