Slow Dance Analysis



Author: Poetry of Anonymous Works Type: Poetry Views: 372



This poem was written by a terminally
ill young girl in a New York Hospital.
It was sent by a doctor -

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

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.

The author is wrong, it was actually written by David L. Weatherford, who is a child psychiatrist and writer. If you don\'t believe me, check on his website. It\'s a beautiful poem though, I memorized it when I had to do a poetry recital.

This is so awesome. I read this poem years ago and even had it on a bookmark, but than all of a sudden it was gone and I lost my copy. I have looked everywhere, searched the Internet inside out for this, it is the story of my life. This poem was what changed the way that I look at everything. Thank you so much for having it! I never knew who it was written by, but that makes a lot of sense. The terminally ill tend to realize what is most important in life. I think that everyone should read this poem. It can enlighten anyone.
