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!
