We’ll Take it From Here

 

They didn’t know going in

But they knew, they knew

But when all Hell broke loose

They should have withdrew

 

That wasn’t in their nature

They had to push ahead

Instead of going the safe way

Took the hero’s way instead

 

We’ve each faced that moment

When we have to decide

That’s the point when lesser men

Retreat safely outside

 

But not these brave firefighters

They would have none of that

For they had a job before them

Which they had to get at

 

So they pushed ever forward

Through smoke, through heat

No giving up now for them

No sounding retreat

 

But the fire got behind them

And their water ran out

That’s when they realized

And in crept some doubt

 

“Is someone coming to get us?”

You could now hear their fear

The Lieutenant calls another Mayday

Hoping someone will hear

 

They fought bravely still, however

Asking for more water

Letting their brothers know

Saying, “It’s getting hotter”

 

Only another fireman can gauge

By a muffled transmission

The moment a battle against fire

Becomes a rescue mission

 

Every man on that scene

Knew only too well

Without quick intervention

This could be a death knell

 

Their brothers fought to reach them

But it was not to be

They were ordered from the building

Despite each man’s plea

 

We know what the dangers are

Before we sign on

We put our lives on the line

From day one and thereon

 

Now these heroes will be honored

By all of their peers

We’ll march and salute them

Try to hold back our tears

 

God bless you, Mike and Ed…

You’ve been given “all clear”

So go enjoy your rest brothers

We’ll take it from here

A firefighter poem

HE STARES IN THE FACE OF DEATH
WITHOUT A SECOND THOUGHT
TO SAVE THAT ONE SPECIAL LIFE
THAT HE SO BRAVELY SOUGHT
HE HAS WALKED AS CLOSE TO
"HELL ON EARTH"
AS ANY MAN COULD DO
AND HE'S SO PROUD OF THE JOB HE DID
FOR PEOPLE HE NEVER KNEW
HE PUTS HIS LIFE ON THE LINE
EVERYTIME DUTY CALLS
ALWAYS DOING WHAT NEEDS TO DONE
WITHOUT EVEN A PAUSE
HE IS A FIREMAN
WITH OVERWHELMING PRIDE
NEVER AFRAID TO TAKE A CHANCE
WHEN SAVING SOMEONES LIFE
OFTEN HE SAYS
"IT'S MY JOB"
BUT WE REALLY KNOW
THAT HE IS VERY SPECIAL
AND ALWAYS READY TO GO
SO WHEN YOU HEAR THE SIRENS WAIL
OR SEE THE FLASHING LIGHTS
STAND ASIDE AND LOOK WITH PRIDE
HE'S GOING TO SAVE A LIFE
