Poem about life moving too fast

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 fly through each day on wings of platinum?

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 a child,

We\'ll do it tomorrow?

And in your haste,

Not see their 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

Do 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.

Take it slower

Hear the music

before the song is over.
