Heroes Among Us


One by one
they march alone
on the streets
or around the town.

They go unnoticed
by so many,
Without a glance,
feeling lonely.

But later that day,
one is noticed,
then followed by
another one.

Greeted with hugs,
and many warm smiles,
the loneliness is soon
chased away.

Gray skies turn blue
as conversations grow,
and as more time passses,
a heart grows fonder.

"We'll meet again," this
promise is met
with a loving smile
and a firm handshake.

New friends made,
they soon part ways,
again to meet
another day.
