Don't Cry For The Horses

Don't cry for the horses That life has set free A million white horses Forever to be Don't cry for the horses Now in God's hands As thet dance and they prance To the heavenly band They were ours as a gift But never to keep As they close their eyes Forever to sleep Their spirits unbound On silver wings they fly A milliion white horses Against the blue sky Look up into heaven You'll see them above The horse we lost The horses we loved Manes and tails flowing They gallop through time They were never yours They were never mine Don't cry for the horses They will be back someday When our time has come They will show us the way On silver wings they will lift us To the warmth of the sun When our life is over And eternity has begun We will jump the sun And dance over the moon A ballet of horses and riders on the winds To a heavenly tune Do you hear that soft nicker Close to your ear? Don't cry for the horses Love the ones that are here Don't cry for the horses Lift up your sad eyes Can't you see them As they fly by?A million white horses Free from hunger and pain Their spirits set free Until we ride again - Brenda Riley - Seymore

That is a beautiful poem. Theres nothing in the world like being on a horse bareback riding through a field.
