You are my hero, you are the star,
You play a role on a bigger screen
that saves me, my family, and my friends.
You need no camera, need no make up.
You are the brave heart, you are supreme.
You are the wall that protects me from
the enemy I know, the enemy I don't.
You keep vigil in hot sun and freezing
cold, and I relax with AC and heater.
You make sure that I do that and enjoy.
I know you are far from your loved ones,
But you ensure I spend time with mine,
You risk your everything in a distant land,
You make me hold my baby close to me.
You see my days and nights are full of joy.
You may be distant, colors of rainbow,
But hey, you are no stranger to me,
You are my family, my brother, my sister,
You are my ideal, you are my icon,
You are my glory, you are my hero.
Thank you, salute you, I love you the best,
Generations before and generations to come
sing your praises, and applaud your deeds,
Millions are praying, you come back safe,
The pride of the nation, with a job well done.
