A hero speaks in a whisper, a poem for Mike by Tracy Diane Miller

I now know that a true hero
Has no need for an “S” nor a cape
A hero speaks in a whisper
Hope finds a way to escape

My friend Mike is one of my heroes
Even if life’s sorrows tried to steal his voice
Kindness is heroic
Mike’s selfless heart remains his choice

He is a quiet soldier of compassion
He is a southern gentleman too
A hero speaks in a whisper
Yet purity of intent rings true
