The Mare That I Loved So
Written & Contributed By
Renee Forbes

I first saw you running wild,
with the wind blowing through your mane,
And I'd give everything I have,
to get you back again.

We grew up together,
our spirits always free,
But when the time came,
I knew you had to leave.

I sat beside you thinking,
if this was the last goodbye,
What words could say the thoughts,
that made me want to cry.

I stood up and walked away,
my heart lying in two,
One piece stayed with me,
the other went with you.

You called out one last farewell,
as I ran away from the pain,
I knew that I would miss you,
but there was so much you would gain.

Your pain would finally be over,
your suffering was near the end,
And although I would always miss you,
my heart would slowly mend.

But although the years will pass,
and one day I have to grow,
I'll never forget the love,
of the mare that I loved so.
