"Signal 13" 

Written "In Memoriam"
Lieutenant Owen Sweeney
Baltimore (MD) Police Department

I lay here wondering why
why you are not here.
You died honoring your town
and now your town is honoring you.

We watch the medic speed away,
and we just can't help saying
"It could of been me being taken away."

The word is out
The headlines read
It shouldn't be.

The flags are low
The blue lines are forming
and the bagpipes are drowning
our tears of sorrow.

As the days are passing
the pain is easing
but no one will forget
the way you were living.
