The Perfect Good-Bye

I love music. Mostly because I think music talks to people. So yes, I have quite the wide selection of favourites. One of my all time favourites (as I feel this is how one should live your life), just captured this Good-bye in a perfect way. I did not have to change much. So Dries – here is my Ode to you!

And now the end is near
And so you faced the final curtain
My friend I’ll say it clear
I’ll state my case of which I’m certain

You’ve played a game that’s full
You traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this
You did it your way

Regrets I’ve had a few :blush:
But then again too few to mention :grin:
You did what you had to do :wink:
And saw it through without exemption :cool:

You planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this
You did it your way

Yes there were times I’m sure you knew
When you bit off more than you could chew
But through it all when there was doubt
You ate it up and spit it out, You faced it all
And You stood tall and did it your way

You’ve loved, You’ve laughed and cried
You’ve had your fill, your share of losing
And now as tears subside
You find it all so amusing

To think you did all that
And may I say not in a shy way
Oh no, oh no, not you
You did it your way

For what is a man what has he got
If not himself then he has not
To do the things he truly feels
And not the deeds of one who kneels
The record shows You took the blows
And did it Your way

Yes it was Your way

Good Luck on your road ahead! May thorns be far apart and few!

    Lets wait until the official announcement from the Bok camp.

    You should know these journos are a bunch of lying twats.

    Last night I read an article on news24 claiming Habana or Kirchner might have to play at 13 as Adi is not fit to play.

    This morning Andy Colquhoun confirmed that Adi is indeed fit:

    “Andy Colquhoun (Bok media manager) says no truth in Adi injury. He’s got his boots over his shoulder and heading to practice.”
