Tributes in Sorrow

I have lost a friend, a companion from many games
Heart felt cries to my leather brother of many names
Glorious moments of triumph and brilliance have we shared
Through excruciating pain came endurance, but only he cared

Daily rituals engendered opportunities to master the force of gravity
The duo caused havoc to defenses and left opposition in deep calamity
Exceptional displays became the trademark of their brief campaign
Audiences were left bedazzled by their magnificent illustrations of the mundane

Many exploits of their green adventures now all seem a distant memory
The efforts of this duo has laid the foundation for a footballing legacy
Tributes to a fallen hero, from a lover of the beautiful game
Long live football, and farewell my red-round friend with no name!
