MEMORIES OF THE GAME

Empty seats cheer with voices from the past
Each new fan as spellbound as the last

Grass as green and soft on your feet
Dirt as smooth as fresh sifted wheat

You feel the memories in the air
You walk out on the mound and stair

Overcome with history of players long dead
You remember the plays and things they did

Some left as legends ,some left unfulfilled
Even those overlooked , all just as thrilled

Unless you played ,it seems hard to know
The feeling you get when you hit or throw

To stand at the plate and recall the blast
That made you a memory in someones past

There is nothing like it to those who know
The heat of the game and heart of the foe

The history and love that you cant let go
To travel so far and not make the show

With no regrets I stand and stair
Because I too was almost there
