One Of The Best

Nostalgia the thing that does move him to tears
For happier days and for happier years
When he was much younger, healthy and carefree
His happier times live in his memory
That time becomes our foe i cannot disagree
He is not the man that he used to be
In a long gone Grand Final he was best on ground
When a finer sportsman than him was hard to be found
In his prime strong and handsome, athletic and tall
An elite sportsman in his code of football
The years have left him feeling feeble and gray
And it can be said of him he did have his day
Never found to be wanting when put to the test
And in his chosen sport he was one of the best.
