The Day Superman Died
It was Thanksgiving in Canada
When we are supposed to give thanks
For all that we are and
For all that we have.
When a man like Christopher Reeve dies
How does one give thanks for the death of a hero?
Be it for that he is no longer in pain?
There was no one to turn the world back for him.
He was a super man
Above and beyond he went
In the name of helping others
And isn't that .. what a hero is all about.
May you rest in peace, Superman
The super hero of my childhood
The man who stood tall and made things right
Will always be my Super hero.
