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 a 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! Pls read n forward … !!

    a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any ideas? Thanks!
