Heart Of A FireFighter

The heart of a Firefighter's is strong and proud, doing a service without being loud.
Some are paid, and some are not, but all rely on God and the talents they were taught.
Years go by, and they'll grow old, with stories to tell that go untold.
Death and pain they have seen thru the years, hidden behind those endless tears.
Family, friends and jobs will go, knowing all to well it's part of the tug and tow.
Sacrifices only few are willing to make, because they value the lives of other more than their own fate.
