Counselors Are Special Friends

A SPECIAL FRIEND

Sometimes I am happy and sometimes sad.
Sometimes I'm scared and sometimes 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.
