Hospital.

Make sure to read what is in the closing statement
AFTER THE
POEM.

 

 

 

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.

FORWARDED
E-MAILS ARE TRACKED TO OBTAIN THE TOTAL
COUNT.

 

Dear All:
PLEASE pass this mail on to everyone you know -
even to those you don't
know! It is the request of a special girl who will soon
leave this world
 
due to cancer.

 


This young girl has 6 months left
to live,
 
and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to

 

live their life to the fullest, since she never will.

 


She'll
never make it to prom, graduate from high school,
or get married and have a
family of her own.

 


By you sending
this to as many people as
possible, you can give her and her family a
little hope, because with every name
that this is sent to, The American
Cancer Society will donate 3 cents per name
to her treatment and recovery
plan. One guy sent this to 500 people! So I know
that we can at least send
it to 5 or 6. It's
not even your money, just
your
time!

 

 

 

PLEASE PASS ON AS A LAST REQUEST.
