Before The Music Stops

11 Aug

Have you ever watched kids on a merry go-round?
Or listened to the rain slapping the ground?
Ever followed a butterflies’ flight
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

Do you run through each day on a 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?

Ever told your friend,i’l do it for you tomorrow
And in your haste, you did not see his sorrow.
Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die,
Cos you never had time to 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’s like an unopened gift thrown away.

You better slow down, Dont dance so fast,
Time is short, The music wont last,
Life is not a race,take it slow,
Hear the music, before the song is over
