"The Eyes of a Man"
you ever can look into the eyes of a man dressed in blue,
It will make you wonder why he protects me and you.
suffers from lack of sleep, the red eyes will tell,
Even missing a meal or two to keep us all well.
of tears sometimes built up inside,
From what he has seen, but thinks he hides.
a little deeper in his eyes and you could even see,
How he felt all the years he has protected you and me.
all the times people have been rude to him,
For pulling them over, while out with their friends.
the little girl he saved from a burning car,
While others just watched him from afar.
to mention, the bank robber he caught last week,
People never talk to him unless it’s his help they seek.
the drugs he has confiscated over time,
The people, he has saved comes to his mind.
times he wonders at the end of the day,
Is it worth all this pain, for such little pay?
don’t look unless you are willing to see,
He is a human being just like you and me.
wears his uniform, gun and a badge on his chest,
Doesn’t make him perfect just a grade above the rest.
if you look real hard you will also see,
A man who you respect is who he longs to be.
