Put a blue light in your window
for those officers in blue
who were gunned down having coffee.
It's the least that we can do.
It's a way of showing honor
to their families who are left
who must face the coming season
feeling lost, alone, bereft.
On these silent nights of sorrow
as we take time to be still
that blue light in the window
will recall those who were killed.
Each with uniform allegiance
to the force they proudly served
died committed to our safety
and the laws they helped preserve.
So... to the green and red of Christmas
let us add the color blue.
It will say to those now fallen
we will never forget you.
