 The poem reads: 
The Dash Between 

 I knelt there at the headstone 
of one I love and cried. 
Name, with dates of birth and death 
were perfectly inscribed. 

 I pondered these two dates 
and how little they both mean 
when compared to the tiny dash 
that lies there in between. 

 The dash serves as an emblem 
of our time here on the earth, 
and although small, it stands for all 
our years of life, and worth. 

 And our worth will be determined 
by how we live each day. 
We can fill our dash with goodness, 
or waste our life away. 

 To ourselves, as well as others,
 let’s be honest, kind and true, 
 and every day, live the way 
we know God wants us to. 

 May we look for opportunities 
to do a worthy deed, 
and reach out with compassion 
to those who are in need. 

 For If our hearts are full of love
 throughout our journey here, 
we’ll be loved by all who knew us 
and our memory they’ll hold dear.

 And when we die, these memories 
will bring grateful, loving tears,
 to all whose lives were touched 
by the dash between our years.
