Theory:

Having a friend is like planting a flower
Show love and kindness it one day will bloom
Let’s be aware as we walk on this planet
Even the tiniest creature needs room.
 
Lessons in life aren’t always so simple
Nothing you’re given will ever come free
Even the smallest of gifts deserves “thank you”
I respect you and you respect me
I think of you and you think of me.
 
Remember everyone here is important
When you’re forgotten it makes you feel sad
Know that you matter and you make a difference
Let no one shame you or make you feel bad.
 
Lessons in life aren’t always so simple
Nothing you are given will ever come free
Even the smallest of gifts deserves “thank you”
I respect you and you respect me
I think of you and you think of me.
