Love of the Game

One’s love of the game sharing

Encouraging life’s new vision


One more summer of baseball

Boys answering their final call


Autumn’s sandlot football days

In field’s dirt, drawing up plays


Collecting each baseball card

Keeping all, never will discard


Playing catch with dad each night

Pitching finds home plate in moonlight


Playing high school football games

Friday nights bringing lasting fame


Playing one final season

Retirement waits in postseason


Wrapped up in competition

Respecting each sport’s traditions


Memories of each game played

Never allowing time to fade


Dreaming of playing again

Competing in life’s senior lane


Remembering each mentor

Always open, each coach’s door


Enduring fabric of sports

Our love of the game playing out
