When You Left

Updated: May 8

by NATALIE STIDHAM - April 27, 2020


I wish I’d said good-bye without shed tears

When God decided that your time was near

I know what was arranged had to be done

For your endless battle could not be won

I still remember the day you were gone

The day when you could no longer hold on


I mourn I wasn’t there for your last breath

That you were alone the day of your death

When your heart stopped I felt a longing ache

Yet I knew that it was all for your sake

But you are now gone and all that is left—

Memories made and overbearing heft


I know you are in a greener pasture

Where you can roam free and run faster

Now away from your never-ending pain

Finally breaking from your anchored chain

You will always be remembered by me

The horse who finally made me feel free
