"Unsung Heroes  

Dedicated to:
Police Officers, Past and Present
~ Berwyn Police Department (Illinois) ~

Through lonely nights and shattered dreams
An officer's pride like a star gleams

Through pain, suffering, and discontent
An officer's will is never bent

These men who will stand alone and with pride
A trait that is believed to have long ago died

We are highly misunderstood and hated at times
Bound by a code which draws certain lines

Not knowing if you'll make it to see the light of day
Gives a new outlook on life and the way that you pray

Lord keep us safe on that desolate street
Till the next time my friend that's where we'll meet
