Life

Guys & Girls,
This poem is not written by me
This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer.
It is quite the poem 

Please pass it 
on.



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 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 even and say, 'Hi'

You 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 a unopened
gift
Thrown 
away.


Life is not a race.



Do take it slower




Hear the music




Before the song is over.
