It’s a bond, a love, a need for most,

A relationship that grows from dust.

The joy from sports keeps the mind engrossed,

Creating lively habits like that of trust.

An athletes body strained for perfection,

In pursuit of one’s dreams and goals.

Every victory and loss points in one direction,

And the cost of the path can often be souls.

Through every setback, every soaring flight,

This love endures, unwavering and true,

In victory’s glow, in the darkest night,

Our bond in sports, a love that will renew.

Continue to chase every dream with desire,

But remember all the knowledge you acquire.
