This is a song I am working on about being a 911 dispartcher

If you could see what I hear
the 911 dispatcher story
911 where's your emergency
My Wife is having a baby and I dont know what to do
Ok, stay calm I am going to tell you what to do
If you could see what I hear
I have heard the first breath taken by the newborn baby
I have heard the last dying breath taken by someone
I have heard the pleading cry of someone in need
I have heard the aftermath of nature's fury
If you could see what I hear
I have heard love, hate and anger all in one call
I have heard joy,pain, sorrow and despair
At the end of each day I go home with the sounds still with me
And the next day put on the headset and do it again
911 wheres your emergency
My son has been shot
I have heard the despair of a mother whose son is dying by her side
I have heard the grief of a son who has found his parent has died
I have heard the cries of children left alone and someone is in their home
If you could see what I hear
If you could see what I hear
I have heard love, hate and anger all in one call
I have heard joy,pain, sorrow and despair
At the end of each day I go home with the sounds still with me
And the next day put on the headset and do it again
I have heard the officer needing help
I have heard the crying of the assaulted wife
I have heard the despair of an ending relaionship
At the end of each day I go home with the sounds still with me
And the next day put on the headset and do it again
If you could see what I hear

Danny, I’ve heard some stories from dispatchers & paramedics that’ll make your stomach turn

Danny those lyrics are made all the more powerful by the fact that you have lived them. As a poem or a song this is awesome art right here.
