Slow Dance [Poem]

Slow Dance [Poem]

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 your 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 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 an unopened gift… thrown away

 

Life is not a race

Do take it slower

Hear the music

Before the song is over.
