slow dance

on

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.

This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl
with Cancer.

— very powerful

Astu Mengesha – stay down blaze up.
