The Football Match


When you asked me to play football with you that day
My life was brightened
By the glow in your eyes
The epiphany I had of my role in your life
Etched itself into the
Darkened reaches of my mind

We played for more than just fun that day
You were the man of the match
But the game ended too soon
The phone rang
When I looked back at you
You were watching me
What did you see that day?
Were there tears on my face?
Or a frown?
Or was your sadness
Reflected in my eyes?
My son

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
