I Wonder If He Knows

Location

Soft muzzle nuzzles my hand
Warm breath dances like smoke through the air
It's a cold day, but my heart is warm - for once
I wonder if he knows

Trapped in a place I can't leave
He is the one who gives my heart wings
On his back, I am free
I wonder if he knows

This horse has found his way in
To the place I guard above all else
His face - my definition of love
I wonder if he knows

My heart, once hard, melts at the sight
Of his graceful gaits
In him, my heart delights
I wonder if he knows

He was my saving grace in every way
He rescued me from
Self-hate
I wonder if he knows

He is my inspiration
My reason to survive each day
To get up and live again
I wonder if he knows

It's my turn, now, to be the one
Who saves another
Hurting soul
I wonder if he knows

It is because of him
My horse, my heart
I can love another hurting heart
I wonder if he knows

To be loved is important
To love even more
I get the chance to do it now
I wonder if he knows

It's all because of him
This horse
I'm not afraid anymore
I wonder if he knows
