**********

 

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 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.
