ONE KIND LITTLE WORD

By Josie Whitehead

One Kind Little Word

When Mum told me off

       And Dad's face seemed cross:

When my big brother grinned

      ‘Cos he thought he was boss:

 

When I got to school late,

       And Miss Scott told me off,

And when she was talking,

      I started to cough –

 

And my work was all wrong

       And I felt really bad,

So I sat at my desk

       And I cried and felt sad . . .

 

BUT

 

I looked round the room,

       And my tears made it blurred . . . .

But my friend smiled at me,

      And he said a kind word.

 

So . . . Then everything changed.

      It was so very absurd

How your day quickly changes

       With one kind little word.
