Slow Dance

Dette er et flott dikt fra David L. Weatherford, og er avslutningen i Timothy Ferriss sin bok The 4-Hour Workweek. Jeg leste den boken i fjor, og det er til denne dag den beste boken jeg noen gang har lest, så derfor småleser jeg litt i den fra tid til annen, og i går leste jeg igjen dette diktet, som jeg synes er så rørende at jeg ønsker å dele den her 🙂

Av David L. Weatherford:

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round,
or listened to rain slapping the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight,
or gazed at the sun fading into the 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 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 friendship die,
’cause you never had time to call and say hi?

You 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’s like an unopened gift thrown away.

Life isn’t a race, so take it slower,
hear the music before your song is over.
