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 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 – Make sure to read what is in the closing statement


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
miss half the fun of getting

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.
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 t o 5 or 6.
It’s not even your money, just your time!

  1. Khi điều gì đó sắp mất đi người ta mới nhận ra nó đáng quý với mình như thế nào. Cô bé đang dần mất đi sự sống, và có lẽ, lúc này, hơn ai hết, cô bé mới thật sự nhận ra ý nghĩa của sự sống, và muốn sống, khao khát sống.
    Mong sao tất cả những ai đã và đang có một cuộc sống, dù hạnh phúc hay khổ đau, cũng hãy biết trân trọng mỗi phút giay mình tồn tại trên cõi đời, để sống và sống sao cho xứng đáng
