You'd Never Know

Serenade of Light

A poem about Netto from Rockman's point of view.

You'd never know

That this boy was a hero:

He eats too much

And sleeps too much

And can never be on time.

But it is he, you know—

That when things explode

And people scream

And tears pray for life—

That saves the day.

It's he that makes things right.

You'd never know

That this boy was a hero:

He complains too much

And is cocky too much

And his head is not always clear.

But it is he, you know—

That when things shake

And people faint

And hearts hope for life—

That saves the day.

It's he that makes things right.

You'd never know

That this boy was a hero:

He's just another boy—

One who smiles a lot

And cheers a lot

And has a heart full of light.

O, sometimes I wish that it would be

What other people thought they knew!

That he was just another boy—

One who laughs a lot

And plays a lot

And has no care in the world!

But then where would we be?

You'd never know,

Not ever—

That this boy,

My friend—

Was a hero to all humanity.

And even if he couldn't be

That one surprising hero

He'd still be one to me.

After all, what are best friends for?
