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.
