The dash between the dates
On a gravestone there are two dates and a dash in-between,
the first to mark the beginning of the journey you'll embark.

The last is the end,
the death,
the finish,
the completion to be marked.

But nobody ever talks about the dash,
the in-between of life and death,
the journey of your life,
your future,
your rife.

27th September is the beginning of my line,
though many times I've fought to seek the end of my life
I am glad it hasn't happened,
for so much can happen,
a life I could never have imagined.
