Fireman's Wife

The table's set, the meal's prepared, our guest will soon arrive.

My husband once more disappears with a hope of keeping a child alive.

While waiting at home again alone, our plans having gone awry.

My first impulse is merely 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 fireman's wife

While there are many drawbacks, I'll take them in my stride

The gusting winds and raging flames may be his final fate.

But with gad's help I can remain my fireman's faithful mate.
