to My Husband:
Every night I watch you
Getting the right style, look, and attitude.
Folding the creases over and over,
Then you have to set the mood.
You are not allowed to be
Nor are you allowed to lose your cool.
No matter how mind boggling or dangerous the call,
You must respond and deal with all kinds of fools.
The career you have chosen
Few people respect what you do,
The benefits and pay aren't much per say,
Yet night after night you walk out that door.
People may say what would he
do all that for,
Why would you risk your life as a career?
So our children, family, and friends can feel safe.
Otherwise, a world without law is a world living in fear.
