quiet hero

i know a quiet hero
who’s asked little in return
for the wisdom and the glory
he has shared with our concern

he’s been humble, he’s been patient
he’s been helpful, he’s been wise
and he’s taught us, by example
to do likewise in our lives

in the stress of everyday
he’s the calming, reasoned voice
he’s the mentor, through whose guidance
we discovered each right choice

and at times, when we’ve been lost
he’s the spirit, he’s the rock
who could steady souls adrift
with a good old fashioned talk

but the most important thing
he’s been able to instill
is a sense there’s something greater
than the daily roles we fill

as his journey carries on
he leaves us a better lot
amidst memories and lessons
that will not be soon forgot
