A Fallen Officer

by Restless Envy

The streets are all lined
By Policemen today
For one of our own
Has been taken away.
The badges we wear
Shining brightly so well
Are blackened today
For a comrade who fell
The feelings are deep
And are mixed to a man
The death of a friend
Is a hard think to stand.

The hearse passes by
With all heads staring straight
Our eyes water now
For we all know our fate
With hearts weighted down
With both sorrow and pain
We say our farewell
'til we meet him again
The public we serve
Also out in full force
To pay their respects
To a policeman of course.

We see so much grief
In our everyday toil,
But nothing compares
To the ride to the soil.
For when we had laid
Our companion away
We realise the chance
That we take every day
We work on the streets
By both day and by night
With never a thought
That we could lose the fight.

The pain of this day
And the sorrow will pass
Tomorrow will come
But the memories will last.
We won't soon forget
Of our dear fallen friend
We buried today
To the Lord did we sent.
We'll always remember
That way that he tried
The goodness he showed
And the way that he died.

Our job is our love
And tomorrow we too
Put our lives on the line
Just as he did for you
And wherever you are
And whatever you do
Remember us now
The policeman in blue.
