Music


hear listen to the music play

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 had 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
disappointment?

Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die,
Because you never had time,
to call and say “Hi”?

Yo had 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,
Listen to the music play.
