05 - A Hero

Rating: 4.5

A hero thinks of others before they think of themselves
A hero will die to protect
A hero can be of any age, any colour
A hero can be man, woman or child
A hero is courageous, loving and brave
A hero will never complain
A hero can be made in one act of compassion
Or years of tender loving care
Some hero's are remembered, whilst many are left forgotten
Hero's are angels in disguise, saving precious innocent lives

I dedicate this poem
To Pvt Steven Freund, Officer Kevin Tonn and all fallen heroes.

I recently discovered that this poem was chosen out of millions of other poems to be a part of a memorial in Galt, California. To say that I am humbled is an understatement.

i am so proud of you nick finding out resentley that this poem you wrote was used at the funeral of an american marine someone you had never meet or even known existed is a great tribute to your talent, also that out of all the hundreds of great poets the family chose your work, which has also been posted on a memorial forum for a deceased firefighter well done

I really love your poem! I love the dedication too. It's sad that you had to dedicate it to fallen soldiers, but it is a great way to honor them.

Verily, a hero is one who thinks of other's grace and protection rather than his own, Saving lives of any human being irrespective of differences is the virtue of a hero A lovely poem indeed, Added to my favourite poem list............10
