Another poem:

How do you explain
To family and friend
The love we have for these
Firefighting men?

They see only the pain
The loneliness in our eyes
They see he’s not there
And grill us with “whys?’

Why do we love them
When we’re left home alone?
Why do we still care
When they can’t even phone?

The fire that burns
In their hearts and their eyes
Also burns in our hearts
And THAT answers the “Whys”

Families, although separated
Are not families apart
Together we stand
On a foundation of HEART.

For love it does bind us
Together or away
It is the faith in this truth
That gets us through each day.


And a few more lines just to let you all on FamilySaid know how I feel about you!

Firefighter families understand.
The same thing they go through
For this I do respect
And appreciate all of you!

I am just at the beginning
Of this thing with my man.
With your help and understanding,
THRIVE? I sure can!


Hope all is well with all of you.
