slow down

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.

That was beautiful to read and so at the right time as I rush around "doing"! I also love

Living in the light

I pledge myself to my Maker
in all things at all times
i recognise through you that I have life.
everlasting presence i live and therefore i must give
Give me the strength to love you as the giver of life and to honour my ancesters, my mother and father as the seed that gave me existence.
i look within myself to find the light, which I need to fully exist.
i pray that i always seek to remain bathed in the glorious sun that is the symbol of your everlasting presence.
