IN MEMORY OF KALIF LEWIS 1998 to 2010    

A dedication to Curlina Edwards, Caldric Lewis & from Kalif Lewis-

Selected by Othniel Biddy (Coach Attie)

Silent Hero Just when I stopped believing, you walked through the door,"Just an ordinary man,” I thought. "He could be nothing more."Past hurts had left me blinded, pains had broken me.Trust had left my heart to roam, in a world of uncertainty.Then you came, a hero with no fancy name,No cape, nor shield or fancy clothes, who showed up at my games,At times I thought I saw your shadow, as I crossed the street.I thought of you as my protector, who could handle any feat.You filled my life with laughter, gave me hope and a dream,Taught me how to love myself, and find my self esteem.You said that you could not fly, or make things disappear.The only powers that you had were found in love and prayer.The many years you took the time, and stood tall by my side,I saw you as a promise keeper, and my lifelong guide.Today as I walk down the aisle dressed in my cap and gown,My eyes will search each row for you; you've never let me down.I stand on this pinnacle, carried here on your wings of grace,Finally conquered the villains of fear, laughed at defeat in the face.Thank you Silent Hero, you touched my life and now I'm freeFree to embrace life challenges and help humanity.
