A Tribute to my Fellow Traveler
We have traveled so many miles,
and yours were different, sweet boy, from mine,
But both paths led us to this space,
My limp hand resting on your back,
As if you have already gone
For your girl to drive through her despair
"I'm here now, guy. You know that, right?
"Lie still so the vet can make you feel better,"
As you gallop into space,
And no more secrets soft, to share,
I send a part of me along
"You can't go with him," people say
"You know that he was just a horse,
... You know,
It had occurred to me
A horse who bit me on the rear
A horse who loved, with all his heart,
A horse who raised me from a child
We will travel so many miles,
And yours are different, sweet boy, from mine.
But this broken girl you've left behind
Will get up now and carry on
