May your teacher recognize you for what you are - my precious, precious LITTLE PRINCE.
May she treat you with love and sensitivity -
May she be patient with you and smother you with hugs and kisses.
May your classmates be friendly -
May the playground be suh-weet
May your lunch stay cool until it's time to eat
(And may it be the envy of your friends.)
May bullies never cross your way -
May you experience opposition gently
May you never be teased or mistreated -
May you look both ways when you cross the street.
May you remember what I taught you -
May you be kind to others and befriend the lonely.
May you smile and introduce yourself; charm the teacher well.
And most of all, even though I'm hurting for you,
MAY YOU HAVE A BALL.
