The crowd is gone, the cheers have stopped,
and the equipment is stored away.
The team is standing on the field
because the coach is leaving today.
He led them through the hardest times,
and was proud the times they won.
But now the season’s over and
his time as coach is done.
The team will go on without him,
will perform at the usual pace.
But though another coach comes in,
there’ll be a void in this place.
Today when the field is emptied
and the team has met the test,
The coach can feel certain that
he will be remembered as simply the best.
