There are other medals

Don’t think the gold medal is the only medal;
For sure, it is the most coveted medal;
But there are other medals;
Not winning the goal medal doesn’t make you
A loser in the least;
As a matter of fact,
You are a big winner;
It’s just that some fellow got ahead of you
And plucked that gold;
But next time it might be you;
And even if you don’t win gold,
And don’t win bronze
Or silver,
You are still great.
Think of the millions of great runners
Who never qualify for the Olympic Games;
They are still good, and still great;
You are great my friend;
Although you haven’t won gold,
You are very great
And I say a big “Bravo!” to you.
Just keep on,
Gold may be yours in no distant time.
