Re: Thomas Andrews--Voyage Into History


Hi All

I know this is the wrong thread but as Wills had posted that fantastic thaught here I thaught I would share this one that I got this morning from a good friend.

Read it please it may just tug a few strings, I know it did for me and made me think a bit as well.

 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.
  (1934 - 1998)
  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 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.
  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.
  So, when your eulogy's being read
  With your life's actions to rehash...
  Would you be proud of the things they say
  About how you spent your dash?

I thank you sandra for that it is lovely.

Graham
