The heart behind the badge,
you sometimes cannot see.
Hidden beneath the surface,
comfort to only me.
I am sworn to serve and protect,
but obstacles get in the way.
The heart behind the badge,
gives me courage to face the day.
Talking to an innocent child,
chasing a criminal down the road.
The heart behind the badge,
carries stories that go untold.
The heart may be the passion,
for the job that is at hand.
God shining down upon me,
He's the one who's in command.
Compassion to deal with victims,
a strength to combat crime.
The heart behind the badge,
is there for me each time.
A spouse or significant other,
a family to come home to.
The heart behind the badge,
What does it mean to you?
