I was once told
That fireman is just a name
But then I met my husband
And I asked him to explain

He said the adrenaline
And the fear
Go hand in hand
When I put on my gear

He tries not to think about
THe tears and the sorrow
Because someone could be distraught
By this time tomorrow

Everytime I hear
That now familiar beep
I must be strong
While inside i weep

When he leaves my side
Fear set at zero
All I can think
Is my husband my hero.

This is dedicated to my husband Lt. Jason M. Rahn and all the countless firefighters who save millions of lives each and every year.
