My Baseball Glove

my Macgregor glove
my other true love

for so many years
taken away fears

you made me a some-body
no longer a no-body

through high school and the navy
when my life wasn't gravy

after the divorce
life took a new course

but then it got worse
another divorce

after the first one
realized you were gone

the catches we made
I will never trade

thanks for playing ball with me
I knew had to set you free

Actually I had a dream my wife and I were at a church and they gave me my Macgregor glove it still had the green shoestring I put on it in my youth to hold it together! So that's why wrote this that glove was a big part of my life
