Do you know my hero?

You are my hero;
Don’t be surprised to hear this;
You are my hero;
You’ve done something so great to me
That you are my hero.
But I wouldn’t doubt
If you don’t know what you’ve done.

Yet it’s so great
I cannot wait to shout it out
To the hearing of the whole world;
It’s so simple;
And it’s just that you’ve restored my confidence;
That’s all.

I know you will be surprised to hear this;
But your words alone did the magic.
You don’t have to leave your seat
To move the world;
You can change the world sitting on the floor;
Your words are enough;
And that’s exactly what you did.

You used words that moved me;
And immediately, I started flying high
In my thoughts;
You moved me;
You moved my heart;
You inspired me;
You set me on a path to great heights;

Are you not my hero?
If you are not, who is?
You are my hero.
I mean what I say;
You are my hero
Because, with words alone,
You have changed my life.

  1. Wow, this is greatness, Ngobesing! I love, love, love it. In the first comment above, the blogger said “There are very few poems where the reader feels herself to be a part of it and this one made me feel,” and she is so right. I’ll bet that everyone who reads it feels the same way. And in so doing, you have made all of us have a marvelous day! Love and hugs, N 🙂 <3
