    Got this in an email fwd:



    >>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.
    >>--------------------

    Incindentally, this was written by some small girl diagnosed with cancer ... and guess she had only few months to live.

    I certainly don't live in the fast lane. Calcutta wouldn't let me even if I wanted to.
