uncomplicated Poetry in a complicated world.<br />

From the first time I read it, many many years ago, I have often found it to be helpful,<br />
and glad for those who have not read it, find it as inspirational as I.

I love this poem! I forgot where I first saw this poem, but I have definitely seen it before. The message behind this poem is so true, life is short and meant to be lived to the fullest. I always end up feeling sad for people that don't seem to consider what is really important in life and take for granted that it's not ever-lasting. This sounds morbid, I know, but it is words like the ones in this poem that remind me I should take advantage of every opportunity I can to live life to the fullest.

This is a most beautiful poem, with a lot to think about !

my tombstone would say DON'T TRY TO TALK ME OUT OF MY DOUBT IT'STHE ONLY THING LEFT I CAN DEPEND ON

PassarellisLove, that is a such a beautiful poem and video. I was a little teary watching it. Gives me much to think about - both as to what I want to do with my life and appreciating the lives of others. I imagine this day must be hard for you being without your husband. Happy Valentines to you. - Jimmy
