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
