The Hero
 
Who was that hero that passed this way?
Was he a teacher, a doctor?
A firefighter?
…no I am afraid not
Who was that hero that passed this way then?
Was he strong?
Was he true?
..Yes true blue
Was he honest, was he caring
Yes and I think, even daring
Then who was this hero that passed this way
Was he a senator?
Was he the president, an Officer?
An athlete?
No I am afraid not
 
Well tell me, tell me please
Was he a man of honor?
Was he a man of strength?
Did you get to meet him?
Did you know him?
Or even
Shake his hand
 
Well let me tell you
This hero was beside me
When I was weak
And gave me all that I have become
He created comfort in a world that offers little
He taught me how to share this greatness with others
And how to love some one
He gave this gift to my brothers
He lived it every day
He never boasted of his grandeur though we all new his gifts
He kept me safe and taught me life
If it weren’t for him I’d never overcome strife
Did I shake his hand?
Of course I did
 
That was my old man.
