 ramblings and things

That Extra Mile

They'd played the game together,
Played to the extreme,
Fought for every victory
Each part of the team.
A team mate's a team mate,
A friend is a friend,
And that's all that matters when
Each game comes to its end.
And when a friend's in trouble
And that friendship is true
He quickly rallied around
That's  just what friends do.
He ran that extra mile,
Fought pain and stress,
Beat back the barrier
Of physical distress.
A self imposed challenge
A target to be done
One hundred and one miles
One fund raiser day's run.
And, with that challenge over,
When he'd fought to the end
He stood proudly by his side
For a friend is a friend.
There was something special
In his victory smile.
Just for friendship's sake
He'd run that extra mile.
