My Fallen Friend

Cameron Baiers 4/16/2014

My sidekick,
My friend,
He's been there for me.
Every Game,
Every practice,
Such a strong bond
Nuclear force couldn't separate us.

But one bitter evening,
With everyone nervous,
The screeching crowd desperately wanting a win,
They were counting on me and my buddy,
With my friend wounded,
From lethal cuts,
Scratches,
Brutal hits, and dangerous slaps,
I raise my friend to the gods,
I start bringing him down fast
Once he slaps the ice,
His blade comes flying off with the puck.
He sacrificed himself to let us win!

My sidekick,
My friend,
He's been there for me.
Every game,
Every practice,
Now laying peacefully and quietly.
As if he is retired.
You have done well.
