A Hero in The Sky

A poem about a soldier and his duties. How one blow can change his families lives forever.


1. Hero in the sky..


Polished, black shiny boots, immaculate as can be at the start of the day. 
Even when the sun is shining he can't put on a real smile
Worried about what may happen today
Stands up straight, with head held high
Fighting in the mud, running a mile
Brave wasn't the word
But he fought like there was no tomorrow
Defending his country
Taking lives
Witnessing the unthinkable 
Then he takes a bullet
A bullet for us
The unwanted call
The big blow to his family
His wife drops to the floor in despair
He's Mom thinking its all her fault
And his son never sees his Daddy again
He's a hero in the sky
