Slow Dance written by a young girl

Slow Dance written by a young girl_d0065558_1152991.jpg余命6ヶ月の女の子が書いた詩が転送されてきました。ここで、みなさんにシェアしたいと思います。

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


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.

Thank you for sharing this with us.
It made me realized how fast I live everyday.
Life is short and we are given 2 choices to enjoy or ignore the joy.
