A VOLUNTEER'S LIFE

A fireman's life is one big surprise,
Usually he laughs, sometimes he cries.
There's always stress, toil and strife,
Hoping he's good enough to save just one life.

His wife understands, when he misses dinner,

If he runs out of church, don't think he's a sinner.

Answering a call, is tops on his list,

Regretting each one he's ever missed.

He tries and tries, but can't make us see,

The happiest men, still work for free.

Jumping from bed, fighting the cold,

Knowing what to do, without being told.

He rushes to the station, jumps on a truck.

Depending on skill, never on luck.

Putting his life on the line, for an unknown friend,

Hoping and praying, it won't be the end.
"The Bravest Men In The World", the title is fitting,

They all do their best, never come close to quitting.

Next time you see them, all their lights blinking,

Take just a minute, to think what they're thinking.
It's a hard job, so show them you care,

And help them out, with a little prayer.

My Daddy the Fireman
My dad has a job, and a hard one at that;
He is a fireman and wears a fire hat.
His uniform is starched and pressed all in place;
He serves and he helps anyone in this space.
He loves to help people, just like he does at home;
He cares for our family and never lets me roam.
When I hear sirens outside in the yard,
I say a quick prayer that the angels are on guard.
I do not always say and I hope my daddy knows,
The heartfelt pride and love for him I do not always show.
Sometimes when he has to go and I feel so very sad;
I hope he knows I love him because he’s
my Fireman Dad!

A Firefighter’s Wife



Chasing flames and saving lives is a firefighters thrill;
And I'll do this job, the best I can, with the Lords grace and will.
But even though I love the flames, the excitement, and the roar;
There's someone waiting back home for me, that I love even more.

My best friend, my soul mate, she is the love of my life.
I am so very grateful that she is my wife.
She understands the job I do, but how she hates it so.
I hear her cries, and see her tears, each time I have to go.

As I race to the fire, to battle the beast, I wonder how she is;
And pray to God, to let me return, to feel her tender kiss.
I know she won’t sleep, with her heart filled with strife,
She knows why I must leave her, to go and risk my life.

She would only have to say the word and I would walk away;
And never fight another fire, or keep the beast at bay.
But I know that's something she'll never do, she loves the man I am.
She's proud of me for the lives I save and for my helping hand.

Though someday soon, the Lord may say, this job will take my life;
And I must leave this happiness, of my family and my wife.
Deep down inside I truly doubt that she would change a thing,
As long as we're together and wearing her fireman's wedding ring.

A FIREFIGHTER'S MOM

A FIREFIGHTER'S MOM is in a class of her own,

Like an angel from heaven, like a queen on a throne.



Her heart and spirit as large as a mountain,

With a smile that sparkles like a sun-splashed fountain.



She's put up with me since the first sound I'd spoken,

Even to this day - that's a feat seldom broken!



While she's fully aware of the danger I face,

She rarely shows it not even a trace.



But deep within - her thoughts are more prayerful,

"Lord, watch over my child - OH please - be careful."



A beautiful lady with her charm and appeal,

Never missing a birthday or my favorite meal.



Like a rare-cut diamond; a priceless breed,

Always ready to help any person in need.



Not mentioned enough, like a prayer or a psalm,

"You're loved more than ever," my FIREFIGHTER'S MOM.

A FIREFIGHTERS PARENTS

A Firefighter’s Parents are in a class of their own,

Like an angel from heaven, like a prayer from the throne.

Their hearts and spirit are large as a mountain,

With smiles that sparkle like a sun-splashed fountain.

They have put up with me since the first sound I’d spoken,

Even to this day – that’s a feat seldom broken.

Though constantly aware of the dangers I face,

They rarely show it, not even a trace.

I feel their prayers protecting me,

Their pride for me is plain to see.

The love and support they have shown along the way,

Is the reason I am a Firefighter today!

Not mentioned enough, my love for you straight from my heart,

And may God bless both of you when we are apart.

I am no good at poems, but love to read them. Poets are very talented, god bless the ones who can write them about firefighting and ems.
