A Firefighters Wife

The tables' set.
The meals prepared.
Our guest will soon arrive.
My husband once more disappears
with a hope of keeping a child alive
Our plans have gone away
My first impulse is to sit down and cry.
But soon again I realize
the importance of my life
When I agreed to take on the duties
of being a firemans wife
While there are many drawbacks,
I'll take them in my stride
the gushing winds and raging flames
may be his final fate.
But with God's help I can remain
my fireman's fateful mate.
