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.
