just a little girl

She stands at home plate with her heart pounding fast.
The bases are loaded, the die has been cast.
Mom and Dad cannot help her, she stands all alone,
A hit at this moment would send her team home.
The ball nears the plate, she swings and misses,
There’s a groan from the crowd with some boos and hisses.
A thoughtless voice cries, "Strike out the bum!" Tears fill her eyes,
The game's no longer fun. Remember, she is just a little girl who stands all alone.
So open your heart and give her a break,
For its moments like this a woman you can make.
Keep this in mind when you hear someone forget,
She’s just a little girl and not a woman yet.
