"Untitled"

The time has come for me
To pick the Final Place
That a member of my family
Will be laid to rest.

As I sit here writing
About the miracles in her life
It kind of makes me wonder
What I have done to be one of them.

She was full grown when we first met
All white and shining like snow.
My first thought will stick with me
"I really wish she were mine."

She helped me learn to love again-
The flying of the wind
As she took me 'round the arena
With her rough but oh-so-nice lope.

She knows all of my secrets,
Crushes, horrors and dislikes.
She always knew what I desired
Or when I needed a friendly neigh.

As I sit here writing
About the joys in her life,
It kind of makes me wonder
What I've deserved to be one of them.

I still remember the story
Of Azura's only live foal
And how that filly always seemed
So different from her mother.

And then her love of me
Always blew my mind,
For no matter how many times I messed up
She always seemed to say "it's all right..."

As I sit here writing
About the horrors in her life
I seem to think and wonder
What have I done to help?

At first there was the foundering,
The colic, abortions and Thyroid
Which had already occurred
Before I knew she was alive.

While here she's had her ups and downs
As any 23 year old would
"The arthritis has to be the worst" I thought
but then I was so wrong.

But as her days grow shorter
Her colics are getting worse.
We find we'll have to do
What I have nightmares about.

As I sit here writing
About her long, long life
And how she has changed me
And the others that I like-

She's helped one overcome fear of horses,
Another to teach to ride,
Yet another on the points of Hunter,
And how to train a horse.

She's taught us how to love something,
That nothing seems to pass.
With a look of her eye and whicker
One must always look back.

I have thought about it
And decided rightly so,
That even if she seems to leave
She is always a part of my soul.

But the decision I had to make
Is tearing my heart apart.
What if she had a month, a year
and not just those two days?

So now I finally realize she's leaving me
And I'm forced to see,
That my best friend
is going to die in front of me.

And as I sit here writing
About other sorrows and cares,
I know that God has her spirit
To hold 'til I get there.

Good Night, Sweet Dreams, I Love You


"Goodnight, Sweet dreams, I love you"
Is what Robby always said,
He said it to him mommy
Before he went to bed

His mommy worked in New York
In a tall and stately tower
And everyone who worked there
Was supposed to have some power

On one September morning
Rob begged her not to go to work
She said they needed pay
And they could play another day

So Robby went to school
He learned about the world
He came home and found his dad
And heard those fatal words.

"Goodnight, Sweet dreams, I love you"
Is what Robby always said,
He said it to him mommy
Before he went to bed

When Rob came home from school that day
He heard his mom was dead
He ran into his little room
And buried his little head

"Goodnight, Sweet dreams, I love you"
Is what Rob had always said,
He had said it to his mommy
Before he had gone to bed

Fighting back the tears,
He lay awake that night.
Tears were not a manly thing
So he fought them with all his might

But then he whispered,
"Goodnight, Sweet dreams, I love you, Mom"
Into the darkness of the night.

And in the darkened hours,
He heard a quiet noise
And though at first he did not know
What had made the sound
He then was sure it was his mother
Her wings rustling all around
