Little Man

 I know of a so-called little man,

because there's a great one he stands beside,

and every time I talk of his friend,

my heart fills and my chest swells with pride.

 

His friend's name is John Michael Anderson,

he's the Captain at Penascola Fire,

and his love has simply lifted me,

his love has lifted me higher and higher.

 

You see, he truly is a great man,

thoughtful, kind and we're connected at the soul,

without him I feel incomplete,

but with him, I somehow feel so very whole.

 

He's the last thing that I see at night,

and he's certainly my morning sun,

everybody has someone they're faithful to for life,

well, let me tell you, he's the one !

 

We have so much fun together,

whether it's skiing or watching a ball game,

it doesn't matter whether we win or lose,

the result is always the same.

 

Now, he's suffered immense tragedy,

but he still manages to hold his head up high,

and it's hard to describe all of his qualities,

but let's see - I'll give it one good try.

 

You see, he is a great leader,

and while others take a walk he takes the lead,

and after Delta Flight 1288 in '96,

he was recognized for one such deed.

 

He showers me with his gifts of love,

and its then I know that I've been truly blessed,

because of all the husbands in all the world,

I simply know that he's the best.

 

I love him with all of my heart,

and I'm just so proud to be his wife,

we'll battle our blazes together, forever,

because I'm a firey's woman for the rest of my life.

 

Because Captain, Chief Senior Master Sergeant,

is more than this girl dreamed her life could be,

and he's more than just a wonderful husband,

he's a just a great little man to me.
