Faceless Hero

Everynight I stand vigilante while you sleep,

Every day I sit in the sand watching for the threats to you,

As you go out to eat I sit down to eat a MRE,

When you stop at the end of your day,

I sit and rest just long enough for the next job,

While you work, I move out on a patrol,

When weekendcomes you party till sunday night,

While I bed down for a day then prep for monday,

When you sit at the airport I'm on that flight you're wating for,

When you see me you see a soldier,

Standing there duffel in one hand ruck in the other,

While you cry I do not,

I smile because I'm home,

for I'm that soldier,

The faceless Hero

Author's Notes:
Call this my self realization. I was sitting in my bunk one night when I realized that I was here to protect those who needed it.
