Here Is To All the Guardians

By Jan J. (or P.J.P.), Little Sister's Keepress

This is for all the brothers fighting to win.

This is for all the sisters struggling for kin.

This is for all the protectors who race to that call,

Echoing with intensity from the core of the squall.

Mokuba hugs Seto after evading virtual claws.

Seto stays stoic, but his fa├žade's only flaw,

Is the tiny silver of a smile that seeps out.

It widens at Mokuba's tugs and pout.

Master Obi-Wan and little Ani are quite the pair.

Other Padawans look on and declare, "It isn't fair!"

Although the duo shares a fate like Abel and Cain,

Master loves Padawan no matter the change in name.

Protective Spike shielding wide-eyed Dawn surprises,

Especially when she's related to the Slayer he despises.

But nothing's sweeter when Buffy's all maternal,

As she carries injured sis over hurdle after hurdle.

Tohru beams blindly at jealous glares,

Which die when Saki's eyes glint as she nears.

"Wave Girl" might be scary to the rest,

But, in Tohru's presence, Saki smiles the best.

Bandaged Serenity holds onto her brother tight,

Since Joey is her guiding beacon in the night.

The reader hopes Duke won't ask her for a date,

For Joey's fists will deliver him to a most grim fate.

Leia does not mean to be the selfish twin,

But Luke is more to her than the father shrouded in sin.

She wants to clasp on to Luke with all her might,

Yet knows he must leave to do what is right.

Feverish Ponyboy lies unconscious in bed.

Sodapop reaches over to gently touch his forehead.

Darry, ever Superman, cradles Pony's arm,

Swearing once again that he will keep them both from harm.

Hiei watches Yukina's every move.

The burns on her wrists--he cannot remove.

But he will not break his garnet gaze,

Never will he lose her to the Underworld's maze.

Her eyes are not those of angry Astronema.

Inside his heart, Andros senses prickling phenomena.

Her eyes are those of terrified Karone.

He knew that he was never alone.

Dally runs darkly--he won't be back.

Tears run on streets--Johnny he does lack.

If one collapses, the other holds on,

But sometimes the one left chooses to be gone.

Each fandom has siblings bonded close,

Even honorary sibs express their care the most.

Through life and death they refuse to surrender,

The love shared and memories they remember.
