KEY ACTIVITY 1 One day my little boy of three With great big smiling eyes Said, “I’m going to play some football mom With all the bigger guys!” Dressed in homemade football gear You raced out towards the street I chuckled to myself, but yet... My heart plunged to my feet. You came back in fifteen minutes No scratches on your skin With much dismay you then announced, “They wouldn’t let me in”! You claimed they said you couldn’t play Because you were too small I promised you you’d play one day When you grew strong and tall. My promise to you held so true For now that time is here, My smiling football player Is in his senior year I’m proud of you and all you’ve done And for all that you will be If I just had one wish, I’d wish That you could still be three.
