SLOW DANCE!

આ કાવ્ય ન્યુ યોર્ક હોસ્પિટલ માં મૃત્યુ પથારીએ પડેલ એક ૧૩ વર્ષ ની છોકરીએ લખેલ છે. ગુજરાતી અનુવાદ કરવામાં મૂળ ભાવ બદલાઈ જતો હોવાથી જે તે સ્વરૂપે મુકેલ છે. ફાસ્ટ જિંદગીમાં જીવતા આપણને જેની પાસે બિલકુલ સમય નથી તે જીંદગી ધીમે ધીમે માણવાનું કહી ઘણું કહી જાયછે

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 ha d 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

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 marreied to have family!
