(Germany)

Your memory stays on


Your memory stays on
While you are long gone
A typical down to earth hero
As you look from up to down below
Stories of you will continue to grow and flow

Your memory stays on
They will remember you for your ups and downs
They will remember you for all the moments
You played a part and were around

Your memory stays on
You were a simple exceptional man
Making mistakes like any human
Your peak was when you took charge of football
Whilst your downfall was alcohol
The decider of your final call

Your memory stays on and will never run
Your achievement in football will always somehow return
We will miss you with each and every rising sun

    Nice one Sylvia. Well structured and obvious feeling. I saw George play when he moved to Fulham. It was sad.

    Hope you will check out my ode the the great man it's called 'One of the Best'. We perhaps come from different viewpoints. But that doent detract from the fact that this is a truely beautiful piece.

    Many regards

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
