I'm sure you've heard at times during our married life,
From those who ask. Aren't you proud to be a policeman's
But Honey, let me say this: it's
you I'm proud of, and they would be, too.
If only they could see what it takes to be one and what
she has to go through.
To be a lawman, it's no easy task to do what
we have to do.
But it's a much harder job to be his wife, and it takes
someone special like you.
And I know God chose you to be with me in this life.
Because he knew you had the quality and strength to be a
Some may say that I have courage and I'm a
hero and that sort of thing;
And when I hear it, this thought to my mind it always
It's you Honey, you're the
courage behind this man's badge, don't you see;
And it's you Hon', who's the
real hero, not me.
And I know you get lonely and frustrated at
times and wonder if it's worth it all;
But if you ever left me, this "brave courageous hero"
would be no man at all.
And I know you worry about the temptations I face on the
Of the women of the night and girls that I meet.
But let me tell you this, Honey,
and you listen good:
There's nobody on this earth who could replace you, they
certainly never could.
And I know there are times when I go to work and you kiss
That you must worry and wonder if this is the day I've
been chosen to die.
And Honey, if that
should ever happen and someday become true,
Remember, Hon', my very last
thoughts on this earth will be of you.
