Dash

I think this is beautiful and want to share it with you. Hope you don't mind.

I read of a man who stood to speak

at the funeral of a friend

He refered to to the dates on her tombstone

from the beginning to the end

he noted that first came her date of birth

and spoke the date with tears

but he said what mattered most of all

was the dash between those years

for that dash represents all the time

that she spent alive on earth

and now only those that loved her

know what that little line is worth

for it matters not how much we own

the cars-the house-the cash

what matters is how we live and love

and how we spend our dash

so think about this long and hard

are there things you'd like to change

for you never know how much time is left

that can still be re-arranged

if we could just slow down enough

to consider whats true and real

and always try to understand

how other people feel

and be less quick to anger

and show appreciation more

and love the people in our lives

like we've never loved before

if we treat each other with respect

and more often wear a smile

remembering that this special dash

may last only a little while

so when your eulogy's being read

with your lifes actions to rehash

would you be proud of the things they say

about how you spent your dash

Oh Dash It All..........

Oh dash it all,

My Dash is bent,

Resulting from

My youth (misspent).

And my middle years?

Gave it a kink,

About 45 degrees,

I think.

Bent and kinked,

Though it may be,

This Dash is mine

It makes me ME!

I just couldn't resist.....

:D
