"Slow Dance"  
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.  
This poem was actually penned by David L. Weatherford, a psychologist and writer. Weatherford had nothing to do with the email that was sent out or the massive forwarding that resulted from it. Someone simply stole it from the legal author. 
It is a beautiful poem.  
Many of us do exactly what it states and seldom stop to smell the flowers. As in, life is too short and we have too many things to acccomplish. Most of which never gets done. 
Just a little bit here, a little bit there.........and so it goes,
