The sun’s warmth caressing my face,
The scent of hay and grass, a sweet embrace.
A dance of trust and unspoken emotion,
As we navigate through the gust of wind.
My frail body light as a sack,
Carefully placed on your mountainous back.
We gallop through fields and forests tall,
Our journey together, a wondrous feat indeed.
Your hooves, a thundering symphony
Echoing through the hills, a wild cacophony.
My tiny fingers comb through your tangled hair,
Who could’ve known but Heaven?
Oh! That laughing eye,
That blazing stare,
Dancing in my fondest memories.
I wrapped my arms around your neck,
And felt the warmth of your breath on my cheek.
You nuzzled me gently with your nose,
As I reveled in our shared existence.
The sun, a golden goddess in the sky,
Gave us her gaze with a gleaming eye.
Oh, my dear companion, my confidant.
A true treasure, a trusty talisman!
