A Hero Falls

A  HERO  FALLS
A coffin is draped with the flag
Died for us, a selfless sacrifice
Paying for freedom with his life
A hero won't come home tonight

A crying woman clutches her child after the call
Another father, husband, another hero took a fall
Took an oath to protect and serve
A violent, unneeded death he didn't deserve

Another hero dies, our hopes taken away
Left in the dark life, mourning another day
There is a hero inside us all, waiting, ready to fight
But until then, another hero falls tonight

The trumpet sings a sad song
Rifles sound off in the air
Sea of the mournful cloaked in black
Another hero slaughtered without care
