Just A Dash - Poem by my Words my song

Here Lies J. Human 1917-1963*

The dash in between is the life that was seen.

Two dates signify the start and finish of a life heard.

With so much in a life the dash resembles the words; that described the laughter, the loves, heartache, sorrow and pain.

Discernment of seasons, heat, cold and rain.

The quality of existence here is a rich photo flash

Yet with all it's fullness gets summed up with a dash

    Good thoughts in this one. Very interesting and thought provoking. Read mine 'Forgotten Old Cabin'. Along the same vein.
