Twenty-one days
Have come and gone
Why is my firefighter
Been gone so long?

He warned me, he did
It was not fair to me
That he was gone so much
and for so long, you see.

I know it’s not me,
It’s the call of the fire
It’s the life that he prefers
A choice I do admire.

I said I could handle it
The loneliness, the strife
All the things you would go through
to be a firefighter wife

Fire Momma, Taz, Sammi,
Heli Groupie too.
This is the time,
I most need all of you.

Help me to make it
To survive to the end
The man is worth it
My love, my friend.

This prose shows my pain
But the words they are true.
I love my dear firefighter
And I will STILL wait for you.
