Now heaven takes them in

Is that thunder we hear in the heavens

article continues below

Or the slapping of sticks on the ice

Is that lightning that cuts through the night sky

A goal scored or a toss of the dice.

With dreams of fame and records broken

Blades sing as they fly past the boards

There’s a hat trick a shutout slap shots like cannons

We envy their grace as they seek their rewards

They swagger they joke a team set for battle

How little they know of what fate has in store

They give it their all they are bold they are fearless

But now they are playing no more

They were young and full of life

The game was theirs to win

But the dice were tossed - the Broncos lost

Now Heaven takes them in.
