I am the metal wall that will always protect you from danger.
I am the night yard owl that looks after you in the night.
Your face is the fresh breeze that brings people happiness.
You will never fear ’cause I’m here for you.
If you fall, I will be your pillow.
If you’re hurt, I will be your Band-aid.
If you want to fly, I’ll be your wings.
If you want to run, I’ll be your road.
I love you so much that I will do anything as long as you’re safe.
I will always be by your side.
by Katherin, 4th grade
