The Heart of a Horse

When your day seems out of balance
And so many things go wrong
When people fight around you
And the clock drags on so long…

When most folks act like children
And fill you with remorse
Go out into your pasture
Wrap your arms around your horse.

His gentle breath enfolds you
As he watches with those eyes
He may not have a PhD
But he is, oh, so wise!

His head rests on your should
You embrace him good and tight;
He puts your world in balance
And makes it seem all right.

Your tears will soon stop flowing
Then tension will be eased.
The nonsense has been lifted
You are quiet and at peace.

So when you need some balance
From the stresses in your day,
The best therapy you can seek
Is out there eating hay!
