soul mates

I stand by your side each night,
With wooden sword and armor tight,
To chase the shadows with unflinching light,
So that your dreams will forever be bright,

I am your soldier,
None shall escape my gaze,
I pace and march to a beat unheard,
With only my courage to keep the cold away,

You stir beneath your blankets warm,
From nightmares plaguing your mind,
A hug, my shield to stear you from harm,
A kiss, my weapon against the dark, 1 comment

You quiet down and your breathing calms,
And once again my fight is won,
A silent night and a guardian victorious,
Sleep the prize and peace till morning,
