  • What do you think I should do?

    My name is Bryan Gammill and I am a new forums member and I wrote a poem for a fallen firefighter here in Denver and I dont know whether I should submit it to the chief or not. Let me know what you think about it. Thanks

    *In Loving Memory Of Robert Krump*

    It’s a dream that you live as a child,
    A man dressed up in his bunkers and his helmet,
    Not knowing the risks but still loving a fireman,
    For some that dream fades, and for others it continues,
    It’s a dream that few find to become reality,
    It’s a dream that takes whole person
    The whole heart, soul, mind, and body,
    They have a God given personality,
    Every word for dispatch is from a stranger,
    Stranger, friend, or family they want to help,
    Never knowing the situation, but never caring,
    Moving in so carefully, knowing the risks,
    They know what has to be done,
    Not knowing what lies ahead, but someone needs their help,
    They’ll give their life for yours, without a doubt,
    They become heroes to some,
    One losing his life to a stranger, would only say “I was doing my job,”
    It’s a dream that might become a nightmare,
    But it’s a dream in its self to be a fireman!

    Before you present it, see if you can find a picture of Robert in his work environment and make a framed salute to him consisiting of his pic and the poem. Maybe once you propose or present this to the Chief and tell him where you want it to hang, see if he will donate a badge or patch or some type of insignia to add to the frame.

    Great poem...sorry you had to write it.....

      All poems are inner feelings of yourself. Personally I think its quite appropriate. Present it.I also think his family would appreciate the words from your heart.

          Great poem and I to am sorry to hear of the loss. I have to agree with dfwscotty, an image of the fallen fire fighter whom this poem is in remembrance of would be a nice touch.

                    What more can I say Bryan?

                    First, my sincerest condolences on your loss, rest assured, even though I did not know him, I feel I can safely say, your loss is felt by all of us.

                    Second,
                    Go for it!!! Do not hesitate to give tribute to your friend and brother. GO with the suggestion of the picture. It is a way of helping you and others deal with the loss. If you felt the need to write it, by all means, share it!

                    Great job, sad that it had to be written.

                    Your brother in the service,
                    Rob

                    P.S. I think I will add it to my collection of poems addressed to the service and the losses, if you don't mind.

                        Buddy,
                        Great poem, you should send it to the Chief. Our Chief post any and all letters that we get from the community in the station on a wall he sets a side for just these type of letters.
