    Poem for a fallen Police Officer

    A Tribute to a Fallen Hero
    Maryanne Rose (Michael's loving sister)

    It's time to tread where others fear
    Bulletproof and keen.
    A new day begins with roll call
    of things already seen.

    Better keep your eye on the ball
    because ahead is all the action
    Behind you is the dread of death
    You've seen it all before.

    Lights and siren sound the alarm
    Does anybody see you?

    Alone, afraid, determined

    Your job has been directed,
    to see that our society
    is served and well protected.

    And when your done
    the lives you saved,
    the perpetrator captured.

    Another night
    you realize
    with visions unattractive.

    The nightmare's there
    but you don't scare
    the Badge
    it will protect you
    Your weapon loaded in your sight.

    It will not be a restless night.

    The comrade mantra
    one for all and all for one
    reverberated within.

    And then it starts to hit you
    like wind within a storm
    the plan you see can only be
    escape, release, and shelter.

    The darkened days
    unending nights
    reliving all the horror.

    And who will say they understand
    ...they've walked the shoes
    you stand in?

    And so you find in solitude
    the answer to the question.

    In death you'll march
    with eyes so bright
    your thoughts become

    Or so you'll think
    with that consent
    solution to the problem.

    And we will sit and stare
    ...With disbelief
    that never will escape us.

    You're on your own
    ..we're here alone.

    But those you leave behind
    will never be the same
    We'll walk alone among the stone
    that bears your name

    We need to see
    to realize that it should not be.
    To try those

    We must begin each day
    a new enlightened way

    Bravely Protect and Serve those
    who Serve and Protect us all.

    Very impressive.

    Have you ever tried, or accomplished getting anything you've written published?

    Once again your words leave us all breathless.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.

    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    Wow, Danny. May not be yours, but you brought it here to be shared. Amazing poem. God bless those it is wrote for and God help all of us that have to face that as a reality everyday.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.
