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

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
