Guardian

He has been diligent
this guardian
escort through life
custodian of fears
gatekeeper to dreams
waging battles
in my stead
his armaments
my heart and soul

Scars and wounds
we both display
but his are so much deeper
as with each blow
he receives for me
he lets fall
into my hand
totemic reminders
of his allegiance
