The Warmth 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 some folks act like children
And fill you with remorse...
Go out into your pasture and 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 shoulder
You hug him good and tight...
He puts your world in balance
And makes it seem all right.
Your tears will soon stop flowing,
The 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 therapy you really need
Is out there eating hay!
