    Since it's Christmas, here is a Poem

    I don't know who wrote this, but I kinda liked it.

    A Peace Officers Christmas

    'Twas the night before christmas,and all through the streets,
    Not a person was stirring,'cept an officer on the beat.
    As he quietly patrolled the town with great care,
    Children and parents slept peacfully there.

    The Officer was clad in blues and his vest,
    Gun on his hip,always looking his best.
    He'd just pulled aside for a quick bite to eat,
    When all of a sudden out on the street,

    A bright light appeared from out of nowhere.
    He shielded his eyes from the brilliant glare
    'Twas an angel of the lord at the squads rear,
    He smiled and spoke,"Dear Officer,don’t fear."

    I've been sent by God with a message for you
    Who faithfully serve while wearing blue.
    He wants you know he loves you all,
    He's pleased with the way you have answered His call.

    "To protect and serve others, selfless you've been,
    Your bravery and kindness have known no end.
    Even in tragedy when night became long,
    You've helped countless strangers by being strong

    "God sees your heart,the joy and the pain,
    He knows the profession can also bring strain.
    So he sent me here to let you know,
    That as you patrol he goes where you go.

    As you protect others, your Father protects you,
    His angels go with you,His spirit does too.
    No bullet to fast no bad guy to strong,

    I’m sent to make sure your life will be long
    “So fear not the night, and fear not the day,
    fear no the threats that come your way,
    I’m sent to accompany you on your beat,
    Theres not one moment your alone on the street”

    The Officer sat stunned by the love of his God,
    He bowed his head, with a tear gave a nod.
    As the Officer said thank you, the angel took flight,
    “Gods got your back.carry on , and goodnight.”
    A Peace Officers Christmas

    You spelled Angel wrong the first time it appears.
    To be born an Englishman, is to be a winner in the Lottery of Life.

    Fixed it; thanks.

    We are the thin blue line
    between you
    and all the money in the world.

    And no you can't have any.

    That's OK. I won't mention the missing apostrophes, or 'to' when it should be 'too'. I understand that English is a foreign language to you Americans.

    Nice poem HNB, here's another good one authored by a Cop.

    A COP'S CHRISTMAS PRAYER
    by By Deputy Dennis "Sledge" Hammer
    Marion County Sheriff Dept., Indianapolis, Indiana

    Christmas morn comes early,
    For the Cop out on his beat.
    His family home around the tree
    As he cruises a lonely street.

    The sound of tearing paper,
    The glow in his young child’s eye,
    The merry toast his Father made
    That Christmas fore he died.

    The scattered toys that lay beneath
    The tree as it starts to shed,
    These are the thoughts that give him pause,
    As he bowed his head and said,

    "Father, faithfully I have tried to protect
    My fellow man this year.
    My Christmas wish, keep safe my own,
    For I can not always be near.

    Grant me the strength I'll need this day
    To complete what e'er the task,
    Keep safe this lowly servant Lord,
    Is all my family would ask.

    As I travel down many lonely roads,
    While o’er my beat I roam,
    Please help me show my brother
    That he stands not all alone."

    He raised his head to check his runs
    As a thought began to grow,
    A Child was born this blessed day
    Those many years ago,

    He fought a righteous battle
    As he traveled land and sea.
    He too had come to protect and serve
    His brother, just like me.


    Dedicated to the men and women of law enforcement who give up so much of themselves, and occasionally are called to make the ultimate sacrifice for their fellow man, that others may enjoy peace and security during Christmas and all holiday seasons.

    Then you have no excuse. Being able to use the Queen's English should come naturally to you, unlike those unfortunates to your South.

    Agreed, I like both poems.


    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. - Leo Buscaglia
