Time is short

Time is short

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 better slow down. 
Don’t dance so fast. 
Time is short 
The music won’t last. 
Ever told a 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" 
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.
