If only LOVE was as easy as ABC
Days past like seconds,
Weeks sway like minutes,
Months fly by like hours
For that dash represents all the time
That rose which lies fresh on the ground
And now only those who loved
And be loved
Know what that little line is worth.
For love does not mean tangible things
The cars, the houses, the cash
What matters is how we live and love
And how we spend our dash.
If we could just pace down
To consider what's true and real,
And what is going on around you
Always try to understand
The way other people feel.
Thank you for all you have done
Love is a feeling hard to express
Love is a feeling hard to describe
I appreciate you
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,
The moments we laughed hard enough,
Might only last a while.
After all, it’s better to have loved and hurt
Than to not have loved at all
