BASEBALL DAYS BRING ME DOWN
by Teresa Lee Rainey (2003)

When Spring strikes out Old Winter,
I start to feel a dread.
Baseball season has arrived.
I want to hide in bed.

Thoughts of playing with my friends
Aren’t ones that make me frown.
It’s thoughts of playing baseball
That always bring me down.

I wish I could liked the game.
My friends all think I should.
But that pitcher’s really fast
And his aim, not so good.

When his fast-ball hits me,
I'll take one for the team.
I feel more like a sissy.
I really want to scream.

Coach puts me in the outfield,
Then fly balls come to me.
If only I could catch one,
How happy coach would be.

Coach holds extreme practices.
He’s teaching us to play.
One push-up for each mistake.
That's forty-eight today.

Each and every game I’ve prayed,
“Lord, help me do my best.”
Just before the game today
I’ll try a little test.

I’ll pray that God won’t even
let this day's ballgame start.
“Lord, You stop this game right now
And it won’t break my heart!”

I hear something to the east,
YES! That sound is thunder.
"It‘s pouring rain!" Coach calls out,
“Where’s this from." I wonder.

There won't be a game today.
A chance, no games all week.
I know there's great big God
who listens when I speak.
