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


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.
