Remembering a Friend

She died as she lived,
    peacefully and gently.
Her mouth full of apples.
No more pain now.
She taught me how to ride
     and so very much more.
She leaves behind a 30-year legacy
    of amazing patience,
    unconditonal love,
    soft gentleness
    and an innate understanding
        and total acceptance
            of the laws of the universe.
One could do worse.
Sleep well, sweet, beautiful girl!

There is a special pain to losing your animals, but if drmaus hadn't mentioned it, I would not have known. What was her name? I spent my teens riding. It was a grand time. Then I moved to New York, and it was too expensive.

I didn't know horses lived 30 years. Good, but still too short for a friend.
