"My pony and me" by "Don West"

This is a poem by my favorite trainer-writer-poet and all around cowboy. Don West.

I was filled with confusion
Had bad feelings inside
So I saddled my pony
And I went for a ride

We covered the ground
Like a bird on the wing
As my cares fell away
I started to sing

I sang to the coyotes
I sang to the sky
I sang to my pony
And I started to cry

I felt the emotions
Letting go from inside
Letting cares fall behind me
As ahead I did ride

The tears keep on comming
To the top of the hill
Where I reined in my pony
And sat there... real still

We looked out together
On the country below
As I stroked his long mane
Nice and easy, and slow

From the back of my pony
My problems seemed few
I gathered the courage
To start life anew

Yes, I relished the moment
Sat there taking it in
Building strength for the future
To start living again

As finally the sun passed
Behind a tall hill
The long rays of twilight
Gave us both a cold chill

It was time to be going
It was time to move on
Cause the time, it is passing
And the past, it is gone

So I clucked to my pony
And moved down the hill
Father time will not linger
But the memory will

Now I cherish these moments
That's the way it should be
Miles of wild open country
And my pony...and me.
