Who Stands For You...To Keeps Things Safe For Another Day?

.......................................

A Warrior goes out tonight...

to stand for you, to stand and fight.

He may be just getting ready and loading up all his gear,

to travel to a place far away from here.

Or he may be on patrol in some alley way,

keeping things safe for you for another day.

He is the Warrior that goes out to fight,

to stand for you, to make things right.

On this night while you’re asleep,

the power to control the peace is in his hand’s to keep.

And should the Warrior have to put out a fire,

do not worry your slumber, it is still safe to retire.

Go about your business as you usually would,

the Warrior is on the job, it will all work out for the good.

You pay the Warrior to take care of you, but it goes deeper than that,

He would do it without reward, knowing he could be pinned to the mat.

A Warrior has died today...I saw it on TV,

the reporters were finding about who he was…from his family.

When it all came down to it, the Warrior did his duty just as he saw it,

tough decision to have to make, I wouldn’t want to…have to…"call it".

When down to the wire, and it became time, for the Warrior’s life to be on the line,

he laid his life down for people that “never-ever” before had him on their mind.

The Warrior now stands in “high-honor” because of this selfless-act,

and passes on the baton to the next Warrior, who in turn, has got your back.

So, give him or her, your respect all the time…as you can see,

they make our world a much safer place...in all...for us to be.
