I May Not Be a Superhero

I may not be a superhero
Or leap buildings in a single bound
But I will always listen closely
Paying attention to every sound

I may not fly through dark stormy skies
Catching frightful bullets in my hand
But I’ll always be your guardian
Behind you I’ll firmly take my stand

I may not bend shiny bars of steel
Or crush dangerous rocks into dust
But I’ll always be the strength you need
And be the man worthy of your trust

I may not shoot out red laser beams
Or see x-rays with my gentle eyes
But I’ll always watch and care for you
Patiently I’ll dry your saddest cries

I may not run as fast as sunlight
Or get there just in the nick of time
But I swear I’ll always come running
No matter what mountain I must climb

I’ll never have true superpowers
Or the gift of monumental strength
But I’ll do the best that I can do
Fight each night regardless of its length

I’ll show you just what one man can do
No real super powers will I need
My heart is enough to be the force
To accomplish each and every deed
