Charcoal grey, with loving, midnight eyes

Her voice understood by only me

Her heart connected to mine by an invisible string

 

Her feet move in perfect cadnece

Her jump, flawless and careful

Together we make a perfect team

Apart we are nothing

 

Through the bad days she comforts me

The good days she makes better

She is the true source of my happiness

Together we fly to heights never before reached

 

Without this creature, I wouldn’t know love,

Or happiness,

Or championship,

Or courage,

 

Without here I would not be able to breathe,

or smile,

or trust,

or live

 

Because of her I’m whole,

I'm happy,

I can love,

and I live

 

There are days I doubt everything

days I want to leave this world

and all my troubles behind 

 

But I cannot leave her

all alone 

she would never understand 

 

 

When I sit in that saddle,

Click my tongue to my teeth,

a smile grows on my face

 

A picture of her rests on my bedside table

Allowing her to be the final thing I see before I slumber

And the first thing I see as the sun wakes me each morning

It fills me with hope, love and happiness

and reminds me why I do not quit

 

I don’t regret a moment of my riding career

There have been hard times,

Bad falls,

Scary moments

 

But through it all she has been my rock

she has kept me safe

Without this beautiful girl I wouldn’t appreciate the good moments

And I wouldn’t have the fantastic memories as I hold today

 

She is my heart

She is my love

But most of all

She is my best friend.

 

Thank you Charlotte for all you’ve given me.
