Beyond the boundaries of your city's lights,

Stand the heroes waiting for your cries.

So many times you did not bring this on yourself,

When that moment finally comes,

I'll be there to help.

On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care,

I'll be right here.

When there are people crying in the streets,

When they're starving for a meal to eat,

When they simply need a place to make their beds,

Right here underneath my wing-

You can rest your head.

On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care,

I'll be right here!

Citizen soldiers holding the light for the ones that we guide from the dark of despair.

Standing on guard for the ones that we sheltered,

We'll always be ready because we will always be there...

I hope and pray that you'll never need me,

But rest assured I will not let you down!

I'll walk beside you but you may not see me,

The strongest among you may not wear a crown.

For my beloved frizzle

Now, I know a few firefighters- and I respect and praise them all for what they do! However, This firefighter in particular is incredibly special to me. Disregarding the obvious that he's the love of my life, ahaha, he's just the most incredible individual I have ever known. He's been the hero for many, including myself. He's the most giving, selfless heartfelt person. I can't even begin to explain it. Even when the world would deal him a shit hand, he'd still be there without hesitation to help someone that needed him.

Be kind to those who help us here- Firefighters, Police officers, Medics. Sometimes the biggest heroes aren't the ones on battlefields with rifles :)
