Silent Hoofbeats
Ethan House

It's 1987 Mom, and I have arrived,
New to this big world.
But this is not where I need to be Mom,
This is only a place to be for awhile.

It's 1991 Mom, four years later,
I have seen you drive by,
Admiring me in this pasture Mom,
But what can I say, I am admirable.

I'm with you now Mom,
This is where I was supposed to be.
With you to experience and love Mom.
to see new places, and create new memories.

We have traveled many miles Mom,
Together, just you and me.
We have had a few wrecks along the the way Mom,
But those are the brick and mortar.

You have given me a purpose Mom,
To love you no questions asked.
You do everything for me Mom,
Anything I want, no matter the cost.

I have given you a purpose Mom,
To love me no questions asked.
I do everything you ask Mom,
Anything you want, no matter the cost.

Fourteen years together Mom,
The best years of our lives
No matter what came our way Mom,
We stood by each other to ease the pain.

Thank you for the life you gave me, Mom.
Thank you for showing me the Love and Trust.
You're welcome for the life I gave you Mom,
You're welcome for the gift of Love and Trust.

I have to go now Mom,
God needs a good horse and has called me to duty.
But I will never be far away Mom,
I will live in your heart forever.

I was laid to rest May 30, 2005 Mom,
In a place I spent many happy years with you.
He was ever so careful with me Mom,
He knew I was scared and needed a gentle hand.

I was placed facing the North, Mom,
North to the Moon and the Stars.
I am safe now Mom,
I am in a safe place with beautiful landscapes.

Care for them all as you did me Mom,
They all love you for how special you are.
My hoofbeats are silent to all ears but yours Mom,
Put your hand on your heart when you want to hear them.

This is not goodbye, Mom,
It's only a place to be for a while,
I love you very much Mom,
You will live in my heart forever.
