A small word
Such great meaning
Used to describe those
who run towards the sound of battle
not away.
Those who see need
and answer with action
Regarding others-
the helpless, frightened, needy-
more than themselves.
Standing between us all
and all we fear.
Fearlessly? No-
not without fear
But understanding that their fear
cannot stop their action
Decisions made long ago
brought to fruition in
split seconds
As they stand to face the devil-
Knowing they may fall.

A small word
Such great meaning-
Reaching out with its arms to encompass
All those things we cannot say-
The words we cannot get past
The lump in our throat.

For Bill, and Scott, Chris, Jason, Jeff, and Jeremy
Our heroes
