I have read this and forwarded it before … and it’s back again.
Whether the girl is or is not with us still or even if she ever was, this message is
and it’s a great message and well worth continuing to circulate!

This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer in a New York Hospital.
It was sent by her medical doctor. She wanted to see how many people get her poem. It is quite the poem.

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

Slow Dance
