Every Unsung Hero

Updated on February 25, 2017


Please now listen to my story, of a hero, I'm about to tell,

For each, has a special memory, all to know so very well.

I was born without a father, one who left before my birth,

As a new one to step in a new life to begin, of such worth.


Refrain:

Every hero has a story, their lives lived in such glory,

One to share and to find lessons for each to learn.

Every message to send, If but a whisper in the wind,

May help lives to have more meaning, then to mend.




As if on the eagle's wings, to my life his help to bring,

My fine father, as my deliverer, he was my best friend.

In everything, I tried, upon his best judgement, I relied,

He served as my own model and on him, I did depend.


Refrain:

Every hero has a story, their lives lived in such glory,

One to share and to find lessons for each to learn.

Every message to send, if but a whisper in the wind,

May help lives to have more meaning, then to mend.


He raised me up, to direct my life, and he was my hero,

He always worked so hard, and meant so much to me.

My father saved me from an unhappy world, so empty,

Gave me a better chance, and to be all that I could be.


Refrain:

Every hero has a story, their lives lived in such glory,

One to share and to find lessons, for each to learn.

Every message to send, if but a whisper in the wind,

May help lives to have more meaning, then to mend.


I never took a chance to tell how much I loved him,

He was always so busy then, and until I was grown.

Those days all flew by, then a day came he did die,

My time of regret and to forever face this life alone.


Refrain:

Every hero has a story, their lives lived in such glory,

One to share and to find lessons for each to learn.

Every message to send, if but a whisper in the wind,

May help lives to have more meaning, then to mend.




My father went to heaven, flown by the angel's wings,

I miss his loving care, his life to share, the little things.

In his heart, I always knew, I loved him so much, too,

My father, under his watch and care, and how I grew.


Refrain:

Every hero has a story, their lives lived in such glory,

One to share and to find lessons for each to learn.

Every message to send, if but a whisper in the wind,

May help lives to have more meaning, then to mend.

      Awesome. My bio dad was gone by my birth also. My real dad is still my hero over a decade after. Thanks for this.

      There are many heroes out there among us all. So many who have never gotten their just recognition. Perhaps more pieces as this one will give them hope. Blessings to you and all family, my friend. whonu
