For Every Day Heroes...

Her 'heroism' details are not mine to tell but this poem inspired by a chat with her, 
is for my friend Sasha and all you other every day heroes!

 I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers...Phil.1:4

This prayer is for you; shouldering hidden hard knocks
And hope’s invisible hills
This prayer is for the warrior
Who battles life’s volley of bills…and more bills

This prayer is for the worker
Torn between home and Must
Of leaving loved ones too long
Because of living’s high cost

This prayer is for the woman
Who gave up her dreams because
Someone needed her more right now
And She was all there was

This prayer is for the man
Who is ‘living the dream’ its price
...sweat, mud, blood, fears, prayers and tears
…love’s sacrifice

This prayer is for you
Everyday heroes unsung
That God would guide and bless and keep
Our spirits forever kind and young
