Sadness Strikes: In Memory Of Cory Lidle - Poem by James Elston

One day your on top of the world
Liked by all your peers
Pitching in the Major Leagues
And receiving lots of cheers

Pitching for the Yankees
The most historic team of all
He was doing what he loved
Getting paid to play baseball

Then he was gone
Taken from us much too soon
When his plane crashed
That New York afternoon

He was a great teammate
And a loving family man
We send our condolences
From his many baseball fans

One day your on top of the world
Then suddenly its gonne
Just remember to appreciate life
The way Cory Lidle had always done
