Christian, What Are You Doing With Your Dash?

 What you leave behind 
is not what is engraved in stone monuments, 
but what is woven into the lives of others."

Christian, What Are You Doing With Your Dash?

The Dash

I read of a man who stood to speak

At the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on her tombstone
From the beginning to the end.

He noted that first came her date of birth
and spoke the following date with tears.
But he said what mattered most of all
Was the dash between those years.
(1900 - 1970)

For that dash represents all the time
That she spent alive 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 most 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 rearranged.

"The first impulse in every healthy mind,
upon hearing a good thing,
is to pass it on to others."

by Robert Glover

Please, do so!
