Last Prayer - Poem by Arno Le Roux

'Last Prayer'
Now relax, your eyes do not deceive
Mother prayed a guardian to receive
Saw a glimmer, then a flash of sort
Heart stopped when her reality distort
I can't feel, but I gather you are cold
Last blueish shiver if truth be told
You were 7 pounds a few wards down
I was summoned from a different town
Order was I keep you safe and warm
To go do battle your every storm
Made my work easy just by the way
Every morning to hear you pray
I don't get hungry, but if I must guess
It's like my wait your prayer before you dress
Lending me the power to keep at bay
Things of sorrow I kept from your way
I now hear the screams down the hall
Was your prayer that I them too stall
Its more often than you'll ever know
Prayers stopped time my wings to grow
I've pulled your blanket up some more
And moved that chair to block the door
I can't feel pain but gather you want an end
Your prayer this morning that you sent?
I'm paging here through a human storybook
Reading of all things things that history shook
No mention in here of 'my kind' I read
The authors well, limited us fable's seed
Heels rushing here just as they're trained
Alarm sounded of your heartbeat drained
But again my obligation my human friend
Your prayer outranked them when your knees you bent
