Care2 friend said it all March 20, 2005 8:00 AM

this was written by a care2 friend and posted in another site..but I believe it fits here as well..and I hope he wont mind me putting it here.....                                                                                     Dream A Dream For Me (by Eric Fletcher) 7:21 AM
Eric wrote a short note for me to post in here for you all:
"Never take life or love for granted.  Live each and every day as if it were going to be your very last, cause it may well be.  Don't wait to tell someone that you love them.  Don't postpone sending your love to your friends.  We are never more than a heartbeat from death and you don't want to leave these things undone.  The housework and yardwork can wait a moment.  That is not what is important.  Of all of the things tht we have to accomplish in life, Love is the most important of all.  Never forget that.  If you do, then you may as well be dead already.  Nothing is more important than love.  Share your love every chance you get, because you may not get another.    Love to all of you,  Eric Fletcher" *hearsmile*
Dream a dream for me,
My heart is far too weak.
For me tomorrow
May never come,
So dream a dream for me.
 
Walk into the sunshine,
Enjoy its warming rays.
Live today to its fullest
Enjoy this day as if there would
Never be another day.
 
Enjoy each moment that you have,
Spend them with someone you love.
Call up a friend you've been missing,
Never take them for granted
They are  precious gifts from above.
 
Admire the beautiful sunset.
Take a walk through the rain.
Take that trip
You've been planning for so long
Don't wait another day.
 
And please dream a dream for me.
My heart is far too weak
Today may be
The last day I have,
So live a dream for me.
 
E. Fletcher

Jen F., thankl yo very muhc for posting this from Eric Fletcher in here. This is very appreciated and definnitely allowed and appropriate to post here. I thought it was a very melancholy piece written from someone who walks on the edge of life and death daily. We do that every day of our lives truthfully. Some of our loved ones that passed on before us had no idea that day would be their last, neither did we. We truly do need to appreciate each moment as if it were our last but that surely has become a struggle and competition in our lives for we struggle with jobs, relationships, committments and life in general. It isn't easy but we have been blessed with Eric's lovely words.  blessings upon you Jen F., for being such a supportive and good friend for Eric. F. Send Eric my best.  I read alot of his poetry via other groups too. ---ginger  [ send green star]

Hello,  I do not know if anyone in this group is aware that Eric is in the hospital. I was told this evening that he had heart trouble on top of the pneumonia.  Please, say a prayer for our friend.    So maybe Everyone could send warm thoughts and prayers for Eric and his Family..*hearsmiles*
