Good Morning Collette, thanks for adding me to your friends list. It is nice to meet you and I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Be safe out there and I hope you have a great week!!! Take care and keep in touch.
A Firefighters Gloves hold many things; from elderly arms, to a kids broken swing; From the hands they shake and the backs they pat; to the tiny claw marks of another treed cat. At 2:00 am they are filled with the chrome; from the DUI who was on his way
home. And the equipment they use to roll back the dash; from a family of six he involved in the crash.
They hold inch and three quarters flowing 175; so the ones going in, come back out alive. When the regulator goes; and there isn't much, but the bypass valve they eagerly clutch. The equipment, the ropes, the oxygen and C-collars; the lives that they save
never measured in dollars, Are the obvious things a firefighters gloves hold; or, so that is what I've always been told.
But there are other things Firefighters Gloves touch; those are the things we all need so much, They hold back the rage on that 3:00 am call; they hold in the fear when your lost in a hall. They hold back the pity, agony, sorrow; they hold in the desire to "Do it
A glove is just a glove till it's on firefighters; who work all day long just to pull an all-nighter; And into the fire they charge without fear; at the sound of a "Help" they think that they hear.
When firefighters hands go into the glove; it's a firefighter who always fills it with love, Sometimes the sorrow is too much to bear; and it seeps in the glove and burns deep "in there."
Off comes the gloves when the call is done; and into the pocket until the next run, And though some are paid and others are not; the gloves feel the same when it's cold or it's hot. To someone you're helping to just get along; when you fill them with love, you
always feel strong.
And so when I go on my final big ride; I hope to have my gloves close by my side, Because like a fellow comrade, through thick and thin; my gloves have always been with me until the end
