    song

    Twenty-one and one half years ago, when I was still a probationary firefighter, my rookie partner and our Lt. entered a burning building on a search & rescue mission. While inside, the floor collapsed. It was poured concrete over wood. My Lt. and partner were killed. I escaped with 2nd degre burns over parts of my body after being trapped inside for twenty minutes. It was an arson fire hired by the owner of whom we were there to rescue. My Lt. had two sons, 6 years and 2 years old.
    A year and a half ago, we hired one of his sons (the one who was two when his dad died). By then I was a Captain and he was assigned to me at the same station from which his dad and I answered his last alarm. It was a reunion tat I will always remember. He asked me to sing in his wedding following his graduation and I readily accepted. I wrote a song for him specifically in honor of his dad. Here are the lyrics. Wish you could hear the music.

    A Touch From You

    Was it a summer wind
    Or a touch from you that warmed my skin?
    A lullabye from cherabim?
    I heard a whisper that calmed my tender soul
    You'd be there beside me to watch me grow.

    And you left me with inspiration
    I feel you with me in times of desperation and you lift me.
    Once again take my hand.
    Today you'll join me in my elation
    Stand with us, bless this day.

    Like a picture frame
    I have your face, I bear your name.
    An angels touch ignites a flame.
    And in an instant night becomes the day
    In your sacrifice you've shown me the way.

    And you left me with inspiration
    I feel you with me in times of desperation and you lift me.
    Once again take my hand.
    Today you'll join me in my elation
    Stand with us, bless this day.
