Slow Dance

SLOW DANCE


Have you ever 
watched 
kids
On a merry-go-round?


Or listened to 
the 
rain
Slapping on the ground?


Ever followed a 
butterfly's erratic flight?


Or gazed at the sun into the 
fading 
night?


You better slow down.


Don't 
dance so 
fast.


Time is short.


The music 
won't 
last.


Do you run through each day
On 
the 
fly?


When you ask How are you?
Do you hear 
the 
reply?


When the day is done
Do you lie 
in your 
bed
With the next hundred chores 
Running through 
your head?


You'd better 
slow down
Don't dance so 
fast.


Time is 
short.
The music won't 
last.


Ever told your 
child, 
We'll do it 
tomorrow?


And in your 
haste,
Not see 
his
sorrow?


Ever lost 
touch,
Let a good 
friendship die 
Cause you 
never had time 
To call 
and say,'Hi'


You'd 
better slow down.
Don't dance 
so fast.


Time 
is short.
The music won't 
last..


When you run 
so fast to get somewhere
You 
miss half the fun of getting 
there.


When you worry and hurry 
through your 
day,
It is like an unopened 
gift....
Thrown 
away.


Life is not a 
race.


Do take it 
slower,
Hear the 
music
Before the song is 
over.


I received this the other day as an e-mail. It was said that a 16 year old terminally ill girl had wrote this poem and her wish was for this poem to be forwarded all around the world. 
You just never know about whether things like this are true, but I forwarded it to just about everyone on my e-mail list. 
I have lost FAR too many friends at a young age. This poem just really hit home for me. 
It is now officially my very favorite piece of poetry I have ever read.


I can only hope and pray that the story that went with it is not true.
