Dance

 This

written by a teenager with cancer.

 She wants to

It is quite the poem

Please pass it

on.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This

 

poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a

New YorK Hospital .

 

 It was sent

by

 a medical doctor -

Make sure to read what is in the closing statement

AFTER THE

POEM.

 SLOW DANCE

 Have you ever

watched

kids

 

 On a merry-go-round?

 

 Or listened to

the rain

 

 

0r

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 then 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.

FORWARDED

E-MAILS ARE TRACKED TO OBTAIN THE TOTAL

COUNT.

 

 

 

Dear All:

PLEASE pass this mail on to everyone you know -

even to those you don't

know! It is the request of a special girl who will soon

leave this world

due to cancer.

 

 

 

This young girl has 6 months left

to live,

and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to

 

live their life to the fullest, since she never will.

 

 

 

 

She'll

never make it to prom, graduate from high school,

or get married and have a

family of her own.

 

 

 

By you sending

this to as many people as

possible, you can give her and her family a

little hope, because with every name

that this is sent to, The American

Cancer Society will donat e 3 cents per name

to her treatment and recovery

plan. One guy sent this to 500 people! So I know

that we can at least send

it to 5 or 6. It's

not even your money, just

your

time!

 

 

 

PLEASE PASS ON AS A LAST REQU EST.

 

 

 

Dr.
