Everyday Heroes

A call comes in then you go out,

Someone in need there is no doubt. Using sirens and lights, you race to the scene.

Knowing not what you face, you must stay keen. You attend to the patient, with skill, speed, and care.

Assessing the trauma the first moments you’re there. Making the call to use vehicle or air,

A life is in danger, you whisper a prayer. Once at the hospital, your job is not done.

You check on the patient, after your run. With hearts full of thanks, from the family and wife

The decision YOU made saved a man’s life! The family most often will not know your name.

“We’re just doing our job” it’s not about fame. Everyday heroes, they never know when,

They’ll be called to respond again and again.
