You are not forgotten. Rest in Peace my Brother.

Somebody killed a policeman today
and a piece of America died
a piece of our country he swore to protect
will be buried with his side
The suspect who shot him will stand up in court
with counsel demanding his rights
while a young widowed mother must work for her kids
and spend many long, lonely nights
The beat that he walked was a battlefield too
just as if he had gone off to war.
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half staff
to his name they will add a gold star
Yes, somebody killed a policeman today
It happened in your town or mine
While we slept in comfort, behind our locked doors
a cop laid his life on the line
Now his ghost walks the beat on a dark city street
and he stands at each new rookie's side
He answers the call, and gave us his all
and a piece of America died
