    Post You can let go...

    So I'm going to try to write something...cause I'm in the writing mood. =)

    You were always there for me
    Between broken hearts and broken bones
    Your beautiful, trusting eyes always saved me
    And when I couldn't hold back the tears
    Any longer
    You where there, with a blonde mane perfect for soaking up tears

    And when I needed an escape
    From a reality filled with pain and hurt
    All it took was one bareback gallop
    Through fields and woods
    Things were better in my world

    When you're body started to fail you
    And those rides became harder
    I could tell you were in pain
    It killed me inside
    But I had to help my angel

    I gave you away
    To a rider who was better for you
    Some one that would only ride you
    Once in a great while
    And still be able to shower you with
    Love and affection

    My heart broke and this time
    There was no blonde mane
    To soak up my tears
    Every breath hurt
    People thought I was crazy
    I heard
    "she's only a horse"
    Over and over
    But you were more than that

    It took awhile
    But I learned how
    To breathe without you
    My heart stopped hurting
    The tears stopped falling
    But I couldn't let you go

    Then I saw you again
    Your golden coat had lost its glimmer
    Your blonde mane in knots and tangles
    You were suffering and with one last look at me
    The strong body I had always believed in
    Shook and fell to the ground
    I felt your eyes on me
    And I whispered to you
    "You can let go now"


    In memory of a wonderful horse, Reno. My first love, my first horse...that one special horse that you're lucky to get. <3

    That is a great. It nearly made me cry the tears were welling up in my eyes.

    Just reading it did you mean that you sold her in the 4th paragragh?

    Yeah, I didn't want to but I couldn't afford to keep 2 horses and I couldn't ride her anymore without causing her pain.
