Artist's Description

This is one of my horses I lost in Jan 08…
He was 9 years old.
I wrote this poem in his memory…


I came to you tonight, and had a little peep
I saw you quietly sobbing, you couldn’t get to sleep.
I nickered to you softly, as you wiped away a tear
I said “I haven’t left you” I wish that you could hear.
I was with you this morning, as you drank your tea
I know that you were thinking, about the times you’d spent with me.

I was with you at the yard, while you cleaned my stable out
You found it very difficult, as I was not about.
I was with you when, my ashes came back
You couldn’t believe it, in a box as small as that.
Later at the house, you fumbled for your key
I very gently blew at you, I smiled and said “ It’s me”.

You were very tired, you sank into a chair
I’d tried so very hard, to let you know I was there.
I am with you always, each and every day
I wish that I could tell you, “ I never went away.”
You lay there very quietly, and smiled I think you knew…
In the darkness of the evening, I was very close to you.

Now the day is over, I stand and watch you yawn
And say “Good-night, God-bless, I’ll see you in the morn”.
And when the time is right, you’ll cross the great divide
Then we’ll stand together, closely side by side.
I’ve so many things to show you, there’s so much to see
Live your jouney out, then come to be with me.
