Fireman's Wife

I am a Fireman's Wife

The table's set, the meal's prepared,

and our guests will soon arrive.

My Husband once more disappears,

with the hope of keeping a child alive.

While waiting at home alone,

our plans have gone awry.

My first response is to

sit right down and cry.

But soon again I realize

the importance of my life,

When I agreed to take on the duties

of being a Fireman's Wife.

While there may be drawbacks,

I'll take them in my stride,

Knowing "My Daddy saved a life,"

our children can say with pride.

The gusting winds and raging flames

May be his final fate,

But with God's help, I can remain

My Fireman's Faithful Mate!
