    Slow Dance (written by a cancer patient )

    This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a New York Hospital.

    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.


    hmm.. what can i say..well, someone wise once said to me to "..enjoy ur life...and there r two ways to live a beautiful life one as if there is no tomorrow...and other as if u r going to live forever....." well, i try to follow this advice and i will advice all of you to follow it aswell...because we dont have a clue about tommorow...anyways all of you take care...

    I read this poem somewhere else- and it inspired me a lot. I was longing to read it once again- and my mind was always in search of these lines whenever I read any touching poems...So am so thankful Elegant..for giving me a chance to read it once again...

    Nice post!
