Just A Little Boy

 

He stands at the plate, heart pounding fast.

   The bases are loaded, the die is cast.

Mom and dad cannot help him, he stands all alone.

   A hit at this moment, would send the team home.

The ball meets the plate, he swings and he misses.

   There's a groan from the crowd, with some boos and hisses.

A thoughtless voice cries " STRIKE OUT THE BUM"

   Tears fill his eyes, the game is no longer fun.

So open your heart and give him a break.

   For it's moments like this, a man you will make.

Keep this in mind, when you hear someone forget.

   He's just a little boy and not a man yet.
