Guardians of the Night
Trust in me, my friend, for I am your comrade. I will protect you with my last breath when all others have left you. As the loneliness of night closes in, I will be at your side. Together, we will conquer all obstacles and search out those who might harm others. All I ask of you is compassion and the caring touch of your hands. It is for you that I will unselfishly give my life. Although our days together may be marked by the passing of seasons, I know that each day at your side is my reward. My days are measured by your footsteps. I anticipate at every opening of the door. You are the voice of caring when I am ill, the voice of authority when I am wrong. Together we shall experience a bond only others like us will understand. Outsiders see us with envy. I will quietly listen and pass no judgement, nor repeat your spoken word. I will remain silent and every loyal. When our time is done, you move on in the world. Remember me with kindness and that nothing passes among us undetected. If we should meet again on another street, I will gladly take up your fight. I am a police working dog. We are the guardians of the night.
