Reflections for Police Officer Leonard Allen Reed

Rest in Peace Sir..............

Officer Thomas Wiederhold, Retired
Fort Worth Texas PD

August 20, 2010


It sounds like thunder far away, but the skies are blue and bright...
And soon they crest the hill nearby, and ride into our sight.
They shake the ground with powerful sound, and they make some hearts beat fast...
They look so proud and noble, like Knights come from the past.

Side by side, they always ride, and seem to move as one...
From early in the morning light, to the setting of the sun.
And children point and wave to them, from cars that pass them by...
And young ones ask their parents, why the men have mirrors for eyes.

They ride the roads, and fight for good, and defend small ones like you...
They ask to ride, and do with pride, and sometimes they are few.
Like men of steel, on Silver Wings, they sparkle in the light...
then with a roar and rumble, they ride out of our sight.

Sometimes when one has fallen, never to ride again...
You can hear the others calling, like thunder on the wind.
Side by side, they slowly ride, and their thunder is a mournful sound...
And the mirrors hide their eyes from us, when teardrops fall to ground.

So if you see one riding, and you look into his face...
You see your reflection in his eyes, you know that you are safe.
For motormen are a special breed, they love to ride the wind...
And when you hear the thunder boom, the fallen ones ride again.

Rest in Peace, Motorman…

Lost in love By New Edition

Would you love me
When nights are cold
Would you love me
When I grow old
Would you care
Baby it's not easy
Take me by surprise
And say you're there

Would you love me
Give me one more chance
Would you love me
Try and understand
Would you share a life
that is music
Show me in your eyes
That you'll stay with me tonight

I'm lost in love
I can't live without you
I'm lost in love,
all my dreams around you
and I'm lost in love
And it's true
I can't live without you
Oh, no

Would you love me
When I'm in doubt
Would you love me
Just to be around
Would you share my
Life that is music
Take me in your arms
And sing my melody

I'm lost in love
I can't live without you
I'm lost in love,
all my dreams around you
and I'm lost in love
And it's true
I can't live without you
Oh, no

And I'm lost in love
Say you really want me
Love is a passion
Just can't hide
And I'm lost in love
Time and again and it
Hurts me

You'll be my reason
For starting again, again

I'm lost in love
I can't live without you
I'm lost in love
And all my dreams around you
I'm lost in love
I can't live without you
I'm lost in love
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
I'm lost in love
Baby I can't live without you

On Wednesday, August 18, 2010, about 2:00 pm, I was pulled over by Officers Adams and Reed for a routine traffic stop. I had my 11 year old nephew with me who's father is a Dallas PD Detective. While I was speaking with Officer Adams, Officer Reed was speaking with my nephew, Jimmy, and he made such a strong impression on him, that as we were pulling away, Jimmy commented that he could not wait to tell his Dad about Officer Reed, and he hoped that he could see him the next time he came to see me in Cedar Park. I was so sorry to hear of the loss of such a fine Officer. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends, Officer Adams, as well as the whole Cedar Park PD.
