Brother, Sister, Husband, Wife
A firefighters path, journey, Life.
A quiet dinner home. A call? A tear…
A desire to keep our loved ones near.

A risky life
Our firefighters so brave.
Our forests, our homes,
Our lives they save.

Each time they go out
They toil and sweat.
A thankless job sometimes,
Dirty, grimy and wet.

A job to be done.
A goal has been set.
To beat back the Dragon
To stop him? YOU BET.

To tame the Beast,
This “Dragon of Fire”
They will face danger
Hour by hour.

It’s the satisfaction they get
For the job they do
And the love from us
That carries them through.

Extended families are found
When on firefighting crews,
Extensions of our own
We share all scraps of news.

For family supports us
When their there and we’re here.
Family understands when
Our loves ones aren’t near.

It is for US that they do this
For US that they Care
It is for US that they do what they do,
Any place, any where.

Support and Love them,
That is what we can do.
Until the moment they come home
When we can finally say in person “I love you”
