Hero


my lord
every brave man
every sleeping child
wants to be hero
but don't be, my lord
do your duty
fight for your country
but come home to me
and don't be a hero
I can not reach and love

my lord
even tough lady
even faithful wife
doesn't want to be left alone
but not every man can understand, my lord
how often we pray
how often we keep eyes on horizon
so come home for me
you don't have to be hero
I can not reach and love

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
