Finding a pencil that’s been chewed,
Telling the time, learning to whistle,
Tying your shoe, for the very first time,
Playing the drums, in your own school band.
Two kinds of ice cream, pizza with sausage,
A warm blanket, a warm puppy,
Knowing a secret,
Walking hand in hand.
Climbing a tree, five different crayons,
Catching a firefly, and setting him free,
Being alone every now and then,
Coming home again.
Having a sister,
Sharing a sandwich, getting along,
Singing together when day is through,
Those who sing with you.
Morning and Evening,
Daytime and nighttime,
Anyone, and anything at all,
That is loved by you.
~ Paraphrased from Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz
