Heroes

Heroes
Dedicated to the heroes in my life

They say everyone has a story to tell
But it sure seems like we've been through hell
They say everything will be alright
But it sure seems hard to make it through the night

Heroes are the ones who wear the mask
Heroes are the ones who fade into the black
Day by day they’ll fight to save you
Night by night they’ll always stay true

When life is so full of pain
And we get held down by every single chain
In the end it feels like there is no one to trust
Always being left in the dust

Heroes are the ones who wear the mask
Heroes are the ones who fade into the black
Day by day they’ll fight to save you
Night by night they’ll always stay true

Sometimes it’s hard not to feel left behind
Hope seems so far from my mind
It’s too easy to cling to the pain of my past
It’s hard to believe love could ever last

But when I think of the times I spent with you
I remember how it felt like I could begin anew
I thank God that you are in my life
It helps to know I’m not alone in this fight

Heroes are the ones who wear the mask
Heroes are the ones who fade into the black
Day by day they’ll fight to save you
Night by night they’ll always stay true

They say everyone has a story to tell
But it sure seems like we've been through hell
They say everything will be alright
But it sure seems hard to make it through the night

    Hi Zach, I must say - excellent write! This is a beautiful dedication - your take on heroes is on point- I especially like your observations that heroes 'wear a mask'- it is the one distinguishing characteristic of a truly selfless act. Very well penned!

    hey thanks! That means a lot! I'm glad that you like it! Heroes are people who give and not expect anything in return. They have helped me through my life and helped me stay strong in my faith. I hope you can have a hero that helps you through life! Don't forget you can be someone's hero as well! God Bless!
