Fireman's Wife

A special kind of woman; a cut above the rest,

That's a FIREFIGHTER'S WIFE, rating her among the best.

How many goodbyes are shouted, without a fond embrace,

As duty steals her man, for the danger he must face.

How many meals are ruined--or tender moments disturbed,

By the wail of a distant signal, sparking loyalty unswerved.

It's a devil of a job, for an angel like this,

Who...for the love of her man, must forsake that kiss.

She can run a garden tractor; even paint a room in need,

How she can stretch a dollar is a miracle indeed.

She's mother, lover, chauffer, and nurse,

A living symbol of: "for better or worse."

Rich is the man, reaping his rewards in life,

Who choose to be the other half of A FIREMAN'S WIFE..
