elevated z8To0 The game has now ended,
The whistle has blown,
I’m leaving the field
But I don’t leave alone.
My teammates surround me,
My loved ones and friends
With more still to greet me
When I reach journey’s end.
Now forever at peace,
With my number retired
I will watch from Above,
Other games I’ve inspired.
