A Poem

ALL ATHLETES, YOUNG OR OLD, SHOULD REMEMBER….

There are little eyes upon you 
And they're watching night and day

There are little ears that quickly 
Take in every word you say;

There are little hands all eager 
To do anything you do;

There's a little boy who's dreaming 
Of the day he'll be like you.

You're the little fellow's idol; 
You're the wisest of the wise,

In his little mind about you, 
No suspicions ever rise;

He believes in you devoutly,
Holds that all you say and do,

He will say and do, in your way 
When he's a grown-up like you.

There's a wide-eyed little fellow, 
Who believes you're always right,

And his ears are always open, 
As he watches day and night;

You are setting an example 
Every day in all you do,

For the little boy who's waiting 
To grow up to be like you.
