huddle close to him when I have no-one else,
he takes my tears and my blows,
who keeps me warm on so cold a night,
he is always there-- my leo.
more than a blanket to keep me warm,
but a body sleeping at my side.
he's always there when I'm so alone,
when my spirit weakens and dies.
fall asleep with his paw on my shoulder,
and remember in peaceful dreams:
two of the guardians that watch over me,
one that has just joined the team.
