He's Just a Little Boy (Poem)

He's Just a Little Boy

~ Author Unknown

He stands on the ice with his heart pounding fast;

The score is tied, the die has been cast.

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

A goal at this moment would take the prize home.

The puck nears the net, it’s close but it misses.

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

A thoughtless voice cries, "Pull off the bum!"

Tears fill his eyes, the game's no longer fun.

Remember - he's just a little boy who stands all alone.

So open your heart and give him a break,

For it’s moments like this a man you can make.

Keep this in mind when you hear someone forget,

He's just a little boy, not a man yet!
