The Dash Poem, by Linda Ellis

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 the date of her birth
And spoke 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 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 is being read
With your life's actions to rehash
Would you be proud of the things they say
About how you spent your dash.

John was a brother of my great Raymond Reed and I know that's a large jump but I would so appreciate this being transferred to my Find A Grave member number 47375910. I have his civil war record that I would like to add to his memorial. Thanks for all your hard work. Luteen Carroll I've connected more of his children.

RE: Roger McRight
I was just trying to advise you that I used the edit button to request a link for Roger to his parents, who are also deceased, but in a different cemetery.
Thanks, Sue

RE: Sarah Francis Wright Morris Young
I would love to have this memorial transferred to me. I am descended from the Morris in her name. Her brother was my 2x great grandfather. They were the only two children of their father about whom not much is known. He died young. Thanks again!

Beverly, thank you for the work you've done Find A Grave. My family are the Edwards and Hurleys in Wedowee Mount Plesant. I just found out about them in July 2013 and I have been hooked every since trying to find out more about them. My husband and I took our vacation in May of this year just so I could make the trip to Wedowee and this little cemetery. Yeah my kids think ive lost it lol.... there is something about standing at the gravesite of your 2x gr grandmother that brings everything you know to life. My gr grandmother mother was Sallie Hurley Edwards and she died when my gr grandmother was only 3. My aunt told me that she mourned for her all of her life. My 2x gr grandfather moved the family to Oklahoma in 1900 or so . As far as I know I may have been the only family member to come baack. So this makes all the work volunteers do for Find A Grave so priceless and valuable, thank you again Kayla Davidson
