Slow Down

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
Ont he
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.
