ODE TO THE GOD OF CRICKET

Poem By : Akhil

 

I’m Time…
I have seen a genius walk into the field & take guard.
I have seen him lift the bat with authority as if he lifted a sword.
I have seen him ruthlessly massacre every opponent,yet sport a very humble,cheerful,childlike demeanour.
I have seen him look up the sky,as if to acknowledge the guard of honour from the heavens,each time he scored a 50,100,or 200.
I have seen him respect his opposition,team mates & everyone alike…
I have seen him do that for the last 25 or so years…
I’ve seen him respectfully touch a 22 yard strip of ground which gave him his life.
I’ve seen his passion & departure from his beloved game touch a billion hearts like none other.
What more can be said about him?
All that I will say is I will miss him…
Men may come,men may go,
But he will be remembered by me forever.
After all….I’m TIME.
