A Special Friend
by Marian Woodhead

Sometimes I'm happy and sometimes sad.
Sometimes I'm scared and sometimes I'm mad.
When I need a friend to listen, someone to understand
a place to go and talk a bit, the counselor can lend a hand.

We might read a story or play a game, watch a film, or just chat about why I came.
When I need help it's nice to know that the counselor's office is the place to go.
