Hero

You were my hero today

And you probably didn’t even know

You were my hero today

And you don’t even know who I am

(But I wanted you to know)

You were my hero today.


You were my hero

When you reached out your hand

To wave down that speeding cab

And opened the cab door for me

While I climbed safely inside.


You were my hero

When you left and then came back

Into my puny little store

And handed me the extra change

I had mistakenly handed to you.


You were my hero

When you saw me and stepped in front

Of a closing elevator door

And waved for me to step on too

So I wouldn’t be late for work.


You were my hero

When you tripped, stumbled, and fell

Into me as I walked by

And got on your hands and knees

To pick up the scattered papers on the street.


You were my hero

When you alone caught my eyes

For a brief moment in time

And didn’t quickly turn your head

But genuinely smiled as you waved.


You were my hero

When you stood behind me in a long line

As I fumbled with my cash

And you laid down the last dollar

That I couldn’t seem to find.


You were my hero

When you dialed my number in the phone

To simply ask about my work

And yet let the conversation drift

for just a few minutes.


You were my hero

When you gave a helping hand

To just show that you care

And do what you know is right

For in that moment, you encouraged me today.


You were my hero today

And you probably didn’t even know

You were my hero today

And you don’t even know who I am.

(But I wanted you to know)

You were my hero today.
