Heroes get up each day,
To dress in blue,
They patrol our streets,
Watching our cities,
Keeping us safe each day.

Making a difference,
We often over look.

How many have we forgotten?

How many are gone,
Lost in the line of duty?

We wait 'til it's too late,
To acknowledge all they've done,
To give them our respect.

The least we can do,
Is give them their due,
Before we lose another,
Hero dressed in blue.
