The Guardians

The winds howled

And the seas roared

Everyone ran to hide

But in the distance

A light could be seen

One steady light

Standing against the stormy night

Strangers wondered who it could be

Who would be out there with the seas pound so

But the towns people knew

They watched the horizon with knowing eyes

They knew they would be safe tonight

Because they knew the Guardians were there

Standing watch

Alert and ready

If the alarm were to sound

They would battle the seas

And they would fight the winds

They would remain steady

They are the Guardians
