If You Read One Thing Today, Please Make It This

Have you ever watched kids On a merry-go-round?

Or listened to the rain Slapping 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 the 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.


Slow Dance by David L. Weatherford
