Heroes and Heroines

Heroes and heroines indeed stand apart.
They’re often defined by greatness of heart.

      They'll risk their own lives, to save others in danger -

       Either someone they know or even a stranger.   

Whilst many retreat when there’s danger about,
The heroes and heroines stay, there’s no doubt.

       They're people who'll act without any delay.

        Then until you are safe, with you they will stay.


They’ll not flaunt themselves with arrogant pride,
But their goodness and courage are hidden inside.
    Most heroes are human - there are animals too -
    Who’ll face danger and death for me and for you.

They’re often a champion who'll fight for a cause.
Oh they’re not the ones striving for fame or applause.

    They're the ones who are caring, fearless and bold.

    They're kindly, they're caring, with hearts of pure gold.
