This One's For You, Gilley
Written & Contributed By

I just want you to know
that I love you very much.
I never will forget you
and I know you'll be in touch.

Even though you're not here now,
I know right where you are.
It might seem like quite a distance,
but its really not that far.

You are where you are meant to be,
in heaven up above.
I know that you watch over me
because I feel your love.

When you see me crying,
I don't want you to be sad.
I am just remembering
the great times that we had.

So when you're up there watching me,
and I know you are,
Please keep in mind
that I am really never very far.

I know that this is hard for you,
much like it is for me.
We will be together soon,
you just wait and see.

I have just one more thing to say
before this letter's through.
Though other horses come and go,
I'm meant to be with you.

You made me smile
when I'd forgotten how to do it right.
You are everything to me, my boy,
I miss you more each night.

"In loving memory of my horse, Gilley."
