You better slow down

Postby Warmsoul/Jeanie13 » Sat Jan 05, 2013 9:11 am

Have you ever watched kids playing on a merry go round?
Or listened to the rain lapping 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?

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?
Just call to 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. Take it slower.
Hear the music before the song is over.
