If we could think of each other as a friend
All this tension and fighting would end…
If you have a problem with something I say ~
Let’s sit down and settle it today.
We have to learn it’s ok to disagree
Without causing trouble between you and me
I promise not to talk badly about you
But I am only human and make mistakes too!
If you feel I’ve wronged you ~ please let me know
That’s the only way a true friendship can grow
We need to work together ~ peacefully as can be
Let’s all give it our best~ we can do it~you’ll see!
Love Mom
