For Matthew

Matthew wore his shirt with pride,
He loved his Chelsea deep inside.
A love that lasted down the years,
A million waves, a million cheers.

We’ll miss you, Matthew.

Matthew’s smile lit up the ground,
And spread to everyone around.
For all he gave our precious team,
His love, his faith, he built a dream.

We thank you, Matthew.

For those of us he never met,
He touched our lives, we won’t forget.
His dream lives on in every fan,
He really was a special man.

We’re cheering, Matthew.

And when we’re sitting in his stand,
We’ll follow everything he planned.
We’ll keep his blue flag flying high.
For Matthew’s love will never die.

We miss you, Matthew.
