The Softball Uniform
I’ve seen you looking fancy, in a dress and sparkly gown
You’re makeup done and lipstick on, with ringlets falling down.
I see you in the mornings as you get dressed for school
Trying hard to look your best, to make sure you ‘feel cool!’
I’ve sat with you in your room, your hair a jumbled mess
Mismatching socks and comfy pants, and you’re pretty nonetheless
So many nights I have watched you sleep, contented with your dreams
I’ve stroked your face and kissed your cheek under moonlit beams.
That picture of you on the mantel, with sand & beach beneath your toes
Kissed by summer, suntanned legs, your beauty truly glows.
But in all the days I have seen you, dressed up or hanging low
It seems to me you’re prettiest. when you adorn that sparkly bow.
Your socks pulled up past your knees with holes in the heel
That any other time in your life would make you squirm and squeal.
Your dirty cleats, your favorite pants, with the hole above the knee
The way you walk with confidence, your favorite number 3.
Your hair tied back in a braid, your team colors showing bright
Your teammates laughing with you, my GOD are you a sight!
I’m not sure if it’s the softball pants, the jersey or the glove
But everything about you suddenly seems to glow with LOVE!
It’s in these moments at the field, you’re carefree and having fun
That confidence, happiness and beauty – join perfectly as one.
So my dear, always remember this, with everything you do
It’s HAPPINESS not clothes nor hair, that make perfect BEAUTIFUL YOU!
If I could give you just one gift, for a lifetime to keep you warm
It would be that you always remember how you feel wearing the uniform!
Pretty, stunning and beautiful – strong and happy too
Are the gifts that softball has lovingly given to you.
