Slow Dance

I received this e-mail from my very good friend in California and I wanted to pass it on as it really spoke to me today. This was written by a young termially ill teenage girl.
Have you ever watched kids
on a merry-go-round?
Or Listened to the rain
Slapping on the ground?
Ever follow a butterfly's eratic 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
Here the music
Before the song is over
This was meant to be sent by e-mail as the american cancer society will donate 3 cents per name to her treatment and recovery. Just send me an e-mail and I can forward it to you. (haleyscottage@aol.com)
