My Hero

He wasn't the strongest man alive

Maybe not the smartest either

But he loved his family with all he had

He knew how to persevere

He is more than an old photograph or faded memory

He is my hero and I know he lives in me

Ne're have I found anyone who could say a truly bad thing against him

He was wise and witty

I cherish those memories of him 

I didn't have much time with him

But still I count him among the greats of the world

He was never a super star

Not everyone knew his name

That doesn't matter

He is my hero 

And in some way he will always live in me
