As the sirens go silent and the lights turn dim, know that I did my job till the very end.
I have answered the last call. Know this Lord that I was always there for a stranger, family member or friend.
I have always fought the good fight, and with each time I have sacrificed alittle of myself. I have carried the memories of all those who you took from this world, no matter what I did. I have lived with the voices of there loved ones crying out in pain, sadness and sorrow. Never once questioning your choices.
I thank you for everyonce in awhile for allowing me to see the greatest of all gifts.....Life, and curse you for allowing me to bear witness to the final moments of someones life, be they the elderly or the young. Never once lashing back in anger and frustration at the pain I was witness to.
Never once have I forsaken you when you stole from me family, friends, brothers and sisters.Never once did I cry out in pain when you took away those that ment so much to me. No matter what I always accepted the situation.
I rose every morning to answer the call, the call that you yourself called out. Entered every situation with the belief that this was your will. I have carried every ounce of weight that you have placed on me.
Took every punch you have thrown at me, and I have kept moving forward.
Know this that when our paths do cross. I will hold you and you only accountable for all the suffering, sorrow and pain, that I have been witness to on a personal level and on a professional level. Know that when I arrive at the gates to your paradise I am coming with a soul and lifetime full of pain and sorrow.
As the lights go dim and the sirens go silent know that as the last call comes to an end, I did my job.
I was there for the stranger in their time of need.
