To the heroes who fight Earth's fires
Fireman’s Prayer

It might have been the mighty trucks, it might have been the sound
Of men in fire-fighting gear to conflagrations bound.
It might have been the secret hope to keep folks from harm’s way
That made me know I would become a fireman one day.
I grew up and, with work and sweat, the special dream came true.
I won the right to wear the hat, the boots, the tunic blue.
And when my time on earth is done I pray my heav’nly sires
Will place the hose within my hands to battle heaven’s fires.
