He noted that first came the date of her birth and spoke of the following 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 alove on earth and now only those who 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. (You could be at "dash mid-range")
If we could just slow down enough to consider what's true and real, and always try to understand the way 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 might only last a little while
