When your lifetime lies ahead
And you have lots to do,
Remember that your world includes
Some others - not just you.
Each day your life is filled with folk
Who share this world with you,
And how they think and what they do
Affects both me and you.
Remember it’s how each of us
Treat others that we meet,
So show a kindly face to those
At school and in the street -
And don't forget the ones at home -
They've lots of love for you:
Your brothers, sisters, Mum and Dad
And Grans and Granddads too.
Remember that we hope that they
Show us affection too -
And love and friendship goes through life -
It should do, that is true.
