Rookie (25.09.1993)

I choose to be the best

There were two promises
One to me and the other to you
First, to become the best
Second, to be the best for you.

Throughout this journey
You held me tighter
Than any problem did.
Your faith in me, your love
Your being by my side
The only prayer I now plead.

When the days went dark
You lit yourself
To light my ways.
When the light blazed my eyes
You pulled the curtains
To maintain my pace.

I've crossed all hurdles
Gripping your arms.
Defeated my nightmares
Kneeling to your charm.

We've reached here baby
The castle of my dream
We won my battle
We're here in my dream!

Please dont walk away
Accusing me, it was just my dream
I want to be here
But without you, nothing means.

Though it was you
With who I ran this race
You're still that someone
I'ld die to get
But here choosing between my promises
I'ld choose to be the best.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
