There's a pounding in the distance,
And its getting ever closer.
It's the sound of many horses,
On their way to heavens doors.
Through think and thin they've stood tall,
Always by their partners side.
With the good ones and the bad,
They were always willing for a ride.
When they finally grew too old,
To carry their friends along,
They knew they were okay to stay,
Their loved ones would do no harm.
And when that final day did come,
They did not fear the end.
With carefree glee they went beyond,
One day they would see their friends again.
