My Horse's Wish
Could you bed me down
with kindness on the soft, sweet words of love.
Could you ride me in man's finest, with hands light as a dove.
Could you teach me with old wisdom by the laws of just and fair.
Could you be my friend forever with a trust so true and rare.
Could you meet me on the morrow, with grasses green and sweet.
Could you free me without sorrow on the plains of loam and wheat.
Could you say farewell with honor on the day my life is through.
And remember me forever, as I shall remember you.
