Tribute To The Human/Equine Bond

A Poem For Sunny
Written & Contributed By

Age 12

As I walked around that stable,
I thought about my horse.
 And as I thought, I said outloud,
"He's in heaven, of course".

He was the sweetest horse I'll ever know,
he was loving and caring too.
 You could talk to him about your problems
and he always understood you.

The last day I ever saw him,
he looked a lot worse then before.
 His ribs were showing, he was lying down,
but his feet were still tired and sore.

Tears were streaming down my cheeks,
but I didn't wipe them away.
 Instead I layed by him and hugged him,
wishing he'd be in heaven someday.

The days that he was suffering,
I wanted my heart to mend.
 I didn't want Sunny to die...
he was my very best friend!

Now when I think of him,
frowning isn't what I do.
Instead I smile because I have a feeling
that my wish came true.
