Slow  
Dance  

This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer. 
She wants to  see how many people get her poem.  

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. 

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.
