Alone, afraid a child sobs, As fire burns around him
A family screams as they shiver, Searching for their youngest son
Minutes tick by, screams turn to joy, A family is reunited
When through hot flames and choking smoke, A fireman carries the child
Parent and children filled with fear, Cling to the roof of their car
Churning waters rising high, Quickly trap and surround them
A rescue team suddenly appears, High above flood waters
All are harnessed and hoisted up, The helicopter flies them to safety
Families’ homes are destroyed, People devastated
Towns are leveled, possessions gone, By the tornado’s power
With compassion a team is there, Providing what is needed
The team’s cross which is red, Gives aid to those affected
I give thanks and appreciation for the work that rescue workers do each day.
Love Made Visible.
