Eduardo Yoldi Poem

The following poem was written for Eduardo Yoldi shortly after his death.
 
 

Goalkeeper

Fly

Catch the ball and hold it between your hands

Like you would hold a lover

Transform yourself into a mountain

Two meters taller, three meter wider

An impenetrable wall of live energy

 

Goalkeeper

Protect your goal

Like you would protect your lover

With the fiery and robust muscles, bone and blood

From your body

With all the heat from your soul

Your struggles

Like a lion, like a champion

 

Eduardo

Always smiling

So Alive

You captivated us so much

That your lies, small and innocent ones

Like those from a child, were echoes of your sincerity

And one time, when a leg of steal kicked the ball

Faster than 150 kilometers an hour in your face

You let me cure your nose

Like an Angel

Until the pain disappeared

 

Goalkeeper

When the hand of God comes to pick You

So you play in another team

Know that we remain with you

And together like a choir of celestial angels

When you enter the gate of heaven

With joy, we will sing

  

GOOOOOOOOOOOOL
 
 
With Us Always
