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 light?

You better slow down.

Time is short

The music won’t last

Do you a 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 hast,

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
