Trust in me my friend, for I am your comrade.
I will protect you with my last breath
when all others have left you.
The loneliness of night closes in,
I will be at your side.
Together we will conquer
all obstacles and search out  
those who might harm others.
All I ask of you is compassion  
and the caring touch of your hands.
It is for you that I will unselfishly give my life.
Although our days together may be  
marked by the passing of seasons,
I know that each day at your side is my reward.
My days are measured by your footsteps.
I anticipate at every opening of the door.
You are the voice of caring when I am ill.
The voice of authority when I am wrong.
Together we shall experience a bond  
only others like us will understand.
Outsiders see us with envy.
I will quietly listen and pass no judgment,
nor repeat your spoken word.
I will remain silent and ever loyal.
When our time is done, you move on in the world.
Remember me with kindness and that nothing
passed among us undetected.
If we should meet again on another street,
I will gladly take up your fight.
I am a Police Working Dog.
We are the guardians of the night.
