"Every Minute Someone Leaves.."

A poem for dying by Marianne Baum.

Every minute someone leaves this world behind.
Age has nothing to do with it.
We are all in this line without realizing it.
We never know how many people are before us.
We can not move to the back of the line.
We can not step out of the line.
We can not avoid the line.
So while we wait in line -
Make moments count.
Make a difference.
Make the call.
Make priorities.
Make the time.
Make your gifts known.
Make a nobody feel like a somebody.
Make your voice heard.
Make the small things big.
Make someone smile.
Make the change.
Make yourself a priority.
Make love.
Make up.
Make peace.
Make sure to tell your people they are loved.
Make waves.
Make sure to have no regrets.
Make sure you are ready.

After looking again this morning, Leti, I see that you are right. And I like it so much better with a bit of her history in my head. Thanks for the heads up; I'm usually better at crediting stuff.

Are you sure of the author? I thought it was Marianne Baum…
