Have you ever watched kids
on a merry-go-round
Or listened to the train
slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight
or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

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 lay in your bed
with the next hundred chores
running through your head?

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"?

When you run so hard 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
