Your wife disappoints you,

But you persevere

Because football has always

Made your passion clear.

You showed your skills

Against the Rams

And added to the legend

That you are the man.

Your personal life gave you lemons

You make professional lemonade

In the annals of sports

You are among…

The spirit hasn’t moved in me

In such a long, long time

And even though my faith is sound

I long for the sublime

The mystical feeling of connect

You say I write trite poetry

For trite people to read.

My obsession with

From the spider known as you.

She used to be young and wild and free

When she first choose to belong to me,

But life has taken his toll on her.

Yet still she manages to stir

The heart that I gave her years ago

On the side of the road where a winter’s snow
