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

You better slow down.

Don't dance so

Time is short.

The music won't

Do you run through each day

On the

When you ask How are you?

Do you hear the

When the day is done

Do you lie in your

With the next hundred chores

Running through
your head?

You'd better slow down

Don't dance so

Time is short.

The music won't

Ever told your child,

We'll do it

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

When you run so fast to get somewhere

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

Do take it slower

Hear the

Before the song is over.

nope, i didnt write this poem
unfortunately, i dont have a poetic bone in my body
only crappy ultra-flexible freaky ones
i was lucky enough to understand this one
i usually dont get poems (note - sudu's poems)
hahaahaha =P

this poem was taken from a forwarded email i got from a friend
in the email, it "Says" that it was written by a terminally-ill teen
i have no idea whether its true or not

but i think its pretty meaningful, this poem

so dont rush in doing things
and take ur life 1 day at a time
and enjoy it while u can
