Farewell

 

 

 

*

Somewhere,

somewhere in God’s own space ~

there must be some sweet, pastured place.

Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow;

some paradise where horses go.

For by the love that guides my pen

I know great horses

live again!

The Bean has left to join his mare.

The cost of loving an animal is high, but the emptiness I’m feeling now is better than the void of not having had 23 years of good times and great memories with The Bean. So run free Little Brother. And give my love to Tia.

  3. So sad, only those who have lived with members of the animal kingdom can truly appreciate them.

    I am so sorry. The poem is lovely and he is such a beautiful horse. I know you will miss him. I hope that he is running in a beautiful pasture with his mare. Hugs
