    Touching poem

    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
    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.

    FORWARDED
    E-MAILS ARE TRACKED TO OBTAIN THE TOTAL
    COUNT.
    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.
    She'll 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 to 5 or 6. It's not even your money, just your time!
    PLEASE PASS ON AS A LAST REQUEST.

    Hoax , but nice and thought provoking nonetheless.

    Ever lost touch,
    Let a good friendship die
    Cause you never had time
    To call and say,'Hi'
    You'd better slow down
    I just so happened to receive one of those phone calls today from a friend of the family I had not spoken to in 20+ years. My Mom told him to call me for info on Aruba.

    Yes, beautiful poem but a hoax. A lot of hoax emails that ask you to forward to 15 million friends are loaded with cookies, resulting in tons of spam. Always good to check snopes.com or truthorfiction.com to verify.

    Orrin could verify but I thought you could NOT send a cookie via Email, IM or SMS. Cookies are part of the internet and are sent/received as part of the HTTP protocol.
    The only way I know of is to have access to server side code which in turn interprets the cookie and then you can send via plain text or attachment.

    ALWAYS!

    AND Of course you could always send http://www.mrsfields.com/giftcertificates/
