Slow down, don’t dance so fast, time is short, the music won’t last ..


SLOW DANCE   by David L. Weatherford

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round,

or listened to rain slapping the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight.

or gazed at the sun fading into the night?

You’d 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 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’s like an unopened gift thrown away.

 

Life isn’t a race, so take it slower,

Hear the music before your song is over.
