This poem is written by a terminally ill young girl in a New York Hospital. Her last request is that this be passed on to as many people as possible, so they might enjoy the greatest gift they take for granted... LIFE!**************"SLOW DANCE"Have you ever watched kidsOn a merry-go-round?Or listened to the rainSlapping 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 dayOn the fly?When you ask "How are you?"Do you hear the reply?When the day is doneDo you lie in your bedWith the next hundred choresRunning through your head?You'd better slow downDon'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 dieCause you never had timeTo 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 somewhereYou 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 slowerHear the musicBefore the song is over.*********As we spend a lot of our time watching the market and worrying about our future investments, perhaps we should take a little time out and reflect on our present lives and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. John Lennon said it best, Life is what happens when your busy making other plans.Please share this poem with friends, family, or even strangers and help fulfill the little girl's request...
