slow dance (annoymous)

Have you ever watched kids
on a merry go-round?
or listened to the rain
salpping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?
or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
you better slow down.
dont dance so fast.
time is short.
the music won' 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 a 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 tommorrow?
and in your haste
not seen 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.
dont 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's like an unopened gift.....
thrown away
life is not a race.
do take it slower
hear the music
before the song is over.

If you put these in the Poetry section you might get more people reading and discussing them.
