One Step More

Beyond the bronze, silver and gold
Is a vision set a story told

Many an hour of practice and play
Marking time for an honored day

Yet within each moment the heart does shout
It is the NOW that it is all about

A journey, a path, a destined you
Marked by what you choose to do

Postpone not your victory and conquest
See it in each moment you do your best

A belief, a dream, a goal
With it your willing paid toll

And with triumph and the winning score
A new journey and one step more.
