In Just A Minute - Poem by richard (sean) scarbrough (james)

In just a minute, stars have ceased to exist,
In just a minute, a handshake becomes a fist.
In just a minute, worlds are turned upside down,
and in just a minute, I felt like a clown.

It only took a minute for me to fall for you,
but the love I have will last forever, you too?
In just a minute I had to really decide,
should I marry you or to run and hide?

Well todays the day we will call ours,
In just a minute though it seems like hours
We will say our vows before God and men
I should say God, man, and even women.

I take my place beside before the preacher,
I see tears in your eyes, a becoming feature
Tears of happiness I just know how you feel,
Then you say something that made me reel.

I can't marry you please try to understand,
I don't love you, but it's not another man.
In just a minute my world was torn apart,
She loved another to her belonged her heart.

I know there is no one else for me, I love her
So I will take my love and find another.
In a just a minute kingdoms are lost
But the bill goes on and what a cost.
