I thought you were valiant.
Boldly posed to ward off intruders.
You were so small in comparison
to the vastness of what you held at bay.
A splash of color against the stark gray.
I suppose it isn't the size that matters,
just the fortitude to face the challenges
you may or may not be able to overcome.
Watching I wondered who placed you there,
you know there, ever so precariously on the edge.
I loved that it was you who defended my room
from the scary monsters who'd enter my window.
