Make sure to read what is in the closing statement
AFTER 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.

Dear All:
PLEASE pass this mail on to everyone you know -even to those

you don’t know! It is the request of a special girl who will soon
leave this world due to cancer.

This young girl has 6 months left to live,
and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling

everyone to live their life to the fullest, since she never will.

She’ll never make it to prom, graduate from high school,
or get married and have a family of her own.

By you sending
this to as many people aspossible, you can give

her and her family a little hope, because with every

name that this is sent to, The AmericanCancer

Societywill donate 3 cents per name to her treatment

and recovery plan. One guy sent this to 500 people!

So I know that we can at least send
it to 5 or 6. It’snot even your money,

just your time!

PLEASE PASS ON AS A LAST REQUEST.
