When you cannot find your pencil

      And your purse has gone astray;

 When you’re feeling rather tired

       For it has been a hectic day -

 

When the morning comes too quickly

     And you cannot cope with rush;

When everyone is shouting and

    You’d rather have some hush;

 

Then perhaps you can’t remember

     What you had to eat for lunch,

So, in case it was just nothing

     You find biscuits then to munch.

 

Other people start to worry

     As your memory seems to fade,

And when you fall, they run to you

     And offer you their aid.

 

These things  can happen when you’re old -

      Well, this is what we’re  told -

But no, this isn’t how it is - - - -

     You’re only eight years old!
