A Girl And Her Horse by Anthony Frando on August 17, 2012
It is in your blood to love horses,
As I watch you ride along the shoreline.
He knows your secrets;
As your tears fall into his mane,
Whispering hopes into his ear
As you grip harder to the reins.
The rush of life, love, loss, and death,
Caring for such a majestic animal
Brings you closer to God’s creature.
Indeed, this horse has the heart of a warrior
As he gallops into the fields of battle.
Those who know him, understand how fully a horse can hold a human heart.
In the end, we’re not certain if God entrusts us
To this majestic horse.
Does it matter?
We’re grateful God blessed us with him.
“Ride faster!” –I screamed to her.
As she glanced with tears in her eyes.
