Don’t Cry for the Horses

Don’t Cry for the horses that life has set free, A million horses forever to be, Don’t cry for the horses now in Gods hands as they dance and they prance to a heavenly band, they were ours as a gift but never to keep, as they close their eyes forever to sleep.

Their spirits unbound on silver wings they fly a million horses against the blue sky, look up into heaven, you’ll see them above, the horses we lost, the horses we loved, manes and tails flowing they gallop through time, they never were yours, they never were mine, don’t cry for the horses they will be back someday, when our time has come they will show us the way.

On silver wings they will lift us to the warmth of the sun, when our life is over and eternity has begun, we will jump the sun and dance over the moon a ballet of horses and riders on the winds to a heavenly tune, do you hear that soft nicker close to your ear? Don’t cry for the horses, Love the ones that are here.
