This Blue Line


THIS BLUE LINE
IS A LINE OF PROTECTION
IT PROTECTS US IN ALL WE DO
IN ALL WE SAY

THIS BLUE LINE
IS A STRONG LINE
IT CAN’T BE BROKEN
IT CAN’T BE PENETRATED

THIS BLUE LINE
IS MADE OF THE BRAVE
THE BRAVE SOULS THAT WALK THE PATH MANY DON’T
THE PATH OF HATE AND FEAR

WHEN ONE LEAVES
THEY LEAVE BEHIND A LEGACY
A LEGACY THAT WILL CHANGE ALL

THOUGH SOME MAY LEAVE
THE LINE WON’T BREAK
IT MUST REMAIN STRONG
FOR THOSE WHO STAY

THERE MAY BE SADNESS
TEARS MAY BE SHED
BUT NEVER A HOLE
WILL BE FOUND IN THIS LINE

THIS BLUE LINE
IS A SPECIAL LINE
THIS IS THE THIN BLUE LINE
