The Heart Of A Horse
Author Unknown

When your day seems out of balance
and so many things go wrong,
When people fight around you
and the day drags on so long,

When parents act like children,
in-laws make you think "Divorce",
Go out into your pasture
and wrap your arms around your horse.

His gentle breath enfolds you,
and he watches with those eyes
He may not have a PhD,
but he is, oh so wise!

His head rests on your shoulder.
You embrace him oh so tight.
He puts your world in balance,
and makes it seem all right.   

Your tears they soon stop flowing.
The tension is now eased.
The garbage has been lifted,
and you're quiet and at peace. 

So when you need the balance
from circumstances in your day,
The best therapy that you can seek
is out there eating hay.
