Alex is a winner

He’s crept into our hearts

Doesn’t bother us a bit

He’s had a few false starts

He’s a hero and a champion

He values family and friends

He’s soldiered on and got it right

Avoided downward trends

His words are full of wisdom

He knows the going is always tough

But he gives it everything he’s got

And isn’t that enough

He’s been an independent battler

An inspiration to us all

He may be small in stature

But his spirit’s 10 foot tall

We love his smile

His sense of fun

His dedication to all that’s true

So when we sit and tally up the score

Alex, the gold medal is for you
