I am a Firefighter’s Wife
The table’s set, the meal’s prepared,
our guest 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 away.
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.
