Slow Down


This poem came to me thru email today. I dont know if the story is true, but supposedly it is written by a young girl dying of cancer. That part true or not, it's worth a short read.

It was sent by a medical doctor - Its a lovely poem and worth "slowing down" long enough to read it. It reminds me of this spring day with little Kaden when a bucket of water was all it took to make us both happy!


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.

"Quilting Tip of the Day"

Take a day off and enjoy the falling leaves....take a walk....hear the music!
