Silent Hero

Brianna Louise's picture


He takes on too much

He's out to fix the world

In time


He can


Fix it all


But time slips away

While he slips under the sheets

To escape the many promises he has vowed to keep

He sleeps

Oh, he sleeps

While the world waits

Waits for he, who is great


To hammer and glue

To reep and to sew

To make the old look new

And water gardens to grow


His burdens and heart are heavy

But he is strong

Though we long for his help

We want him to be overjoyed 

So we'll mend his heart

And he'll go on

And on

And on
