A Poem

A beautiful poem written by a teenager who suffered from cancer..


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.


I really like this poem. Life is short..
Enjoy our life, live with happiness~
And do what we like..
Slow down our pace and see the world..
This world is big and beautiful far more we can imagine..
