Listen the music of life !

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 would better slow down, 
don’t dance so fast;
Time is short, 
the music won’t last.

Ever told your child, 
we will 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 would 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.

This poem had been written by a girl who was dying of cancer. So dedicated to that poetic heart. Her message to the world was to live life before you leave. Enjoy every moment gifted by God.
