Album Notes
The Hero
By Micaela Bensko
© 2010

She heard them say
It’s a boy
She watched his play
She packed his toys
Driver’s license
Cap and gown
to uniform
and Army proud

Medals on the humidor
Headlines scream they’re sending more
He goes again
She waits at home
They call her on the telephone

Red eye flight to Walter Reed
She holds his hand
on her knees
looks at him
A different man
Lifts his chin
she says…

Thank you son
From the home of the brave
For standing tall
When others looked away
They all applaud when you walk by
you are the hero in my eyes

People pass him on the street
With no idea he’s why they’re free
She holds the door
He makes his way
He looks into her eyes to say

Thank you Ma
From the home of the brave
For standing tall
When others look away
They should all applaud when you walk by
you are the hero in my eyes

You gave me life
made me walk with pride
You’re the hero they don’t see
You are the hero
To me.

To me.

A wonderful tribute to our heroes and their Momma's!
I run a support group on FB for Mom's of Soldiers. This beautiful song is only a very small part of all Micaela has done for our troops! I'd love to use your song in a video/slideshow of our members pics Micaela. Please contact me on FB or on the MOS group page. This song needs to be out there!
