Promise Of Friendship - Poem by Lewis Halstead

I want to be friends with you
Till I am an elderly person
And need a walking stick. When I’m dead
I still will be remembering you.

If we are friends
I will let you come to my house any day
And play with all of my toys
And my best toys too.

I will give you
My best game, my favourite book
And my most favourite toy that I have ever played with.

I will like you more than
My first pencil case,
My bunch of computer games
And my pen set.

By Lewis Halstead (written at age 8)

    I think this says it all. Reminds me that so much wisdom is lost in 'life' - I think I will spend today like an eight year old. Thanks!
