Volunteer Firefighter Mommy.

Why do you do it?
That's the question most people say
That they couldn't do my job
Each and every day

I'm willing to work
Without any pay
I'm willing to sacrifice
My nights and my days

I will be very honest
I am afraid to die
I don't want to be injured
Or see my children cry

But if my position were different
If I were just a mom
I would want someone like me
When things go terribly wrong

So that is why I do it
That's why I risk my soul
I would want someone like me
To save my children when they're cold

If they are frightened or they are hurt
If they are scared and all alone
I would want someone like me
To safely bring them home

You ask, why do I do this?
Well the answer is very clear
I would want someone like me
To save my children I hold dear
