Can you give a friend a cookie,
The last one on the plate?
Can you help him tie his shoe
Even though you’re running late?
Can you keep a silly secret?
Can you hold your talky tongue?
Can you count at Hide-and-Seek
With your eyes closed till you’re done?
Can you share your toys with others?
Can you borrow and return?
Can you thank them with a smile?
Can you wait to take your turn?
Can you do these friendly things,
And do them all again?
Then you will always know that you
Can BE and HAVE a friend!
