Slow Dance - A poem written by a teenager with cancer.

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.

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

Ramo Vigrahavan Dharmah

A great verse from Ramayana: आहार निद्रा भय मैथुनं च  सामान्यमेतत् पशुभिर्नराणाम् । धर्मो हि तेषामधिको विशेष:  धर्मेण हीनाः पशुभिः समानाः ॥ AhAra-nidrA-bhaya-maithunam cha samAnam_etat_pashubhir_narANAm | dharmo hi teShAm adhiko visheSho dharmeNa hInAH pashubhiH samAnAH|| Eating, Sleep, Fear and Sex ; these habits are common between human beings and animals. It is the Dharma which is the special quality of the human beings. Without the Dharma, they are similar to the animals.  Rama is The Embodiment Of Dharma.  Maaricha, while speaking to Ravana- (Aranya Kandam 37-13): रामो विग्रहवान् धर्मः साधुः सत्य पराक्रमः | राजा सर्वस्य लोकस्य देवानाम् इव वासवः || ३-३७-१३|| raamo vigrahavaan dharmaH saadhuH satya paraakramaH | raajaa sarvasya lokasya devaanaam iva vaasavaH || 3-37-13 "Rama is the embodiment of righteousness, he is an equable person with truthfulness as his valour, and as with Indra to all gods he is the king of entire world.
