    Quite the poem......

    Slow Dance
    This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer.
    She wants to see how many people get her poem.
    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

    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.

    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 donate 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 REQUEST

    :shock::shock: That's put a right dampner on it now:x Some people have no morals!! Thanks for letting us know :thumbsup:
    Nice poem tho none the less

    even if it is a hoax the poem in itself still makes u think, and i do think we all do take life too seriously and are in too much of a rush.

    Its a nice poem even if it is fake, the person who made this up had a good way with words

    poem might be good and all....but im sorry i really dont like how people play and abuse illnesses and sob stories to get chain mails out.....

    no offence OP.. just winds me up hehe!
