    Well, since we're without a poem, somebody write one!

    Ok she has given permission again and said she won't change her mind.

    My wife dabbles in poetry from time to time. I got back from a call this afternoon and this was waiting for me.
    The pager starts beeping
    and my heart stops beating
    I hold my breath and listen
    Your station is called
    you scramble to get dressed and run out the door
    I hear you call "I Love You" as you take off
    I hear the siren fading and I begin to pray
    that you arrive safetly on the scene
    that the fire is put out quickly
    that no one is hurt
    most of all I pray that it wasnt my last chance to kiss you goodbye

    I dont dare turn on the news
    in my mind the fire remains small
    I watch the clock and sigh
    play with the kids
    fold the landry
    anything to stay busy
    why didn't I kiss you goodbye?

    the phone is ringing
    I offer a shakey hello
    youre on your way home
    everything is fine
    I can finally breathe
    I hear you pulling into the drive
    I cant wait to give you a kiss
