A Poem by a girl Dying of Cancer......

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.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear All:
PLEASE pass this 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.

Save a life..."Be Someone's Hero"....Be an Organ Donor

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
